Well, Jeff pointed out I was missing the brackets!

CK> use of a (anonymous) instance rather than the class seems to be ok.
Yes, but I'm not sure that making the instance anonymous rather than
explicit really helps... Although there's a question there as to
whether my reluctance to use that form is rooted in reality with the
current-generation of garbage collectors...
I'm still slightly intrigued as to what's going on such that the
static "toString(int mod)" method on the class isn't being called.
I tried the following to try & help ensure that the correct
type-conversion was occurring, but that made no difference...
>>> import java.lang.Integer as Integer
>>> import java.lang.reflect.Modifier as Modifier
My guess is that either there's an conversion (to PyInteger?)
getting in the way somewhere but I've not idea how to either prove or
disprove the guess.
