I wonder how many typical Python programmers know the term
"singleton". Though it's not unusual for there to be exactly one
instance of a class in a process, it's pretty unusual to think about
that as a valuable aspect of a class. Which for the traditional
definition of singleton, it very much is.
-1 for calling utilities singletons, since that has nothing to do with
+1 for calling them utilities, since that has everything to do with
how they're used.
