Hi Kevin,

Thanks a lot for the patch.  I think the real intent always was to 
actually look through all the returned getSuperclasses(), and the error 
that superclasses past the first one are effectively ignored has never 
been noticed.  (getSuperclasses() returning a sequence of length greater 
than one only happens for multiple-inheritance interface types, which 
are relatively rare.  And the isDerivedFrom in question is probably also 
not called that much.)

I will look into this tomorrow.  (I had this oddity on my list for a 
while now, anyway.)
