Re: Class or class_obj


When global language conventions clash with "local" project
conventions, basically all standards say to use the local one.

In the first lines of PEP8:
> Many projects have their own coding style guidelines. In the event of any conflicts, such project-specific guides take precedence for that project.

A little later:
> Some other good reasons to ignore a particular guideline:
> * When applying the guideline would make the code less readable, even for someone who is used to reading code that follows this PEP.
> * To be consistent with surrounding code that also breaks it (maybe for historic reasons) -- although this is also an opportunity to clean up someone else's mess (in true XP style).

So I'd say to prefer Odoo consistency at the moment, and push for a
change in Odoo conventions at the same time, as some of those are
really horrible.
