Completely!
I agree that we have pass by value. My question is, why do you dislike
this representation for it

def meth a
...

meth(b)

a ---+
       |
       +------> An Object
       |
b---+

I thought it was making things quite clear
Maybe one should add that after

b = 42

the picture changes.

-- 
The 1,000,000th fibonacci number contains '42' 2039 times; that is
almost 30 occurrences more than expected (208988 digits).
N.B. The 42nd fibonacci number does not contain '1000000' that is
almost the expected 3.0e-06 times.
