A callable thing in Python is anything that you can call by writing
thing(). It is able to be called, a call-able. :-)

Usually, a callable object has a __call__ method. But I think this
was only true in the modern versions of Python.
But the rule above was and is always true, and there is a boolean
function callable(thing) which tells you if thing is callable, I.e.
you can do a thing() call.

() means any argument list, not further specified. If thing is
happy with the supplied argument list is a different question.

Well, and the question about self:

	Stackless.tasklet( self.r_run(args) )

was in fact relevant, becauseself.r_run(args) could have
returned a callable object itself!
