Implement `StatResult` as a named tuple

Reported by: schwa Owned by: schwa
Priority: trivial Milestone: 3.1
Component: Library Version: 3.0a1
Keywords: StatResult, namedtuple Cc:


Currently StatResult inherits from tuple. However, as ftputil 3.0 and above require at least Python 2.6, we can safely assume that collections.namedtuple is available, so we can use this to simplify the implementation a bit.

Check if the module name or class name are different in Python 3.

namedtuple doesn't work well for StatResult which should have some default attribute values.

In [1]: import collections

In [2]: Result = collections.namedtuple("Result", ["a", "b", "c"])

In [3]: class MyResult(Result):
   ...:     def __init__(self):
   ...:         # Actually can't be modified because tuples are immutable.
   ...:         self.c = 3

In [4]: mr = MyResult(1, 2)
TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-4-e68f8d253c6e> in <module>()
----> 1 mr = MyResult(1, 2)

TypeError: __new__() takes exactly 4 arguments (3 given)

In [5]: mr = MyResult(1, 2, 3)
TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-5-f0ac3da19b2e> in <module>()
----> 1 mr = MyResult(1, 2, 3)

TypeError: __init__() takes exactly 1 argument (4 given)

I guess I could make namedtuple work by creating a derived class overriding __new__, but then it gets more complicated than the current approach.
