Revert "Define functools.partial as overloaded function instead of its own class" #3077

merged 1 commit into from Jun 21, 2019

Reverts #2878

Caused problems in many real-world codebases. Proper support for partial will have to come from a plugin instead.

I've seen the following problems reported:

  • Keyword arguments to partial() functions no longer work
  • isinstance() checks on functools.partial no longer work
  • Access to .func and other attributes no longer works
