class SomeClass (object):
    class Nested (object):
        def __init__(self):

Put the point on `pass' line.  With my code: "SomeClass.Nested.__init__".
With original imenu-dependent code: " class SomeClass".

I personally see this as an improvement.  With imenu approach it is
necessary to regenerate the menu, as far as I understand.  I personally
see little value in having "class X" in mode line, I'm more interested
in which exactly method of that classn the point is.  Finally, "class"
is probably redundant, because at least with standard Python naming
scheme, it is very easy to tell classes and methods/functions just by
their names.

Still, I agree it is somewhat of code duplication.  I was not aware
there was imenu approach.  It never manifested itself on my Python
buffers mode lines...
