Part of 0.5.14 release.

It does work, indeed! Thanks a lot Kay.

I just pushed stuff to factory that fixes the issue. I believe loading a compiled 
module broke the compiled executable isinstance checks too, so that's a larger 
improvement than I thought, and actually a bug fix.

Awesome, thanks! Please keep me updated.

for module compilation, the inspect module is not patched. I am going to check 
out, if an alternative route, registering with the "abc" module, won't be a 
better idea anyway, or if compile modules, when loaded, should do the same as 
binaries do, which could cause other issues I guess.

I agree that should work for you, and will make it work.

The real solution is of course to not compile long.

Hi Kay,
(I don't know if what I am reporting here is a bug or a feature.)

Consider the following:

import inspect

def constructor_args(class_):
	return inspect.getargspec(class_.__init__).args[:]

from class_info.args import constructor_args

class Person:
	def __init__(self, name): = name


Say we create an extension module executable as follows:
$ nuitka --recurse-all --module class_info --recurse-directory=class_info

Also, in main/ we execute
$ nuitka --standalone

Of course, at this point, knows nothing about If I then move into main/main.dist/ and execute ./main/main.dist/main.exe, I get the 
following error:

line 816, in getargspec
    raise TypeError('{!r} is not a Python function'.format(func))
TypeError: <unbound compiled_method Person.__init__> is not a Python function

If I put and in the same directory and compile in standalone 
mode this problem does not happen. Is this a feature or bug?

The reason why I want to do what I described is that I have a Python module, equivalent 
of class_info in the example above, which takes very long to compile. If I have 10 
python scripts which reference this package, they would all take very long to compile 
as a result. I would like to compile (the equivalent of) class_info only once, and copy into the various .dist folders. Is this the correct strategy?
