Why does it have to be an inner anything?  An ordinary, top-level,
"outer" module is a perfectly good "container for functions, without
caring about "self.""  The Python "math" module, for example.  As a long
time, non-native speaker of Object Oriented, I must admit that I still
don't understand the obsession with classes (a certain level of
usefulness and arguably appropriateness for some kinds of problems,
sure, but not the obsession).
