Something that is more pythonic is something that doesn't use

i.e. try-block).
Well, yes... I actually changed my mind. I didn't have so much types
to working with, so the if-elif block is ok. But I was curious to know
if there was a "better" way.
*smells a bad class design* If that is the case, I'd recommend on
splitting that behavior into two or more functions/operators (or possibly
splitting the class). It's hard to reason the behavior of a class if the
class is that complex (Simple is better than complex; Complex is better
than complicated. The Zen of Python this:2-3).
Mmm, yes, maybe it was a bad design. Not sure. Anyway I changed it :D
