Aha, thank you all.
Here then, is my first problem.

Context:
I am using Python to interrogate the value of some thing in Blender 
(just as someone else might want to use Python to look at an email in a 
Mail program or an image in Photoshop).

Assumptions:
So, I want to look at the attribute of an instance of a class called 
CompositorNodeMapValue. The code in the Python tutorial seems to be for 
creating an instance of a class, but I assume Blender (in my case) has 
already created the instance that I want to interrogate.

Question:
If this is so, should I find the code to get a list of the instances 
that have been made (maybe using inspect?) and then, when I have its 
name, the attributes of the one that interests me?

Or shall I go into the garden to eat worms?
