Return true if the object argument is an instance of the classinfo
argument, or of a (direct, indirect or virtual) subclass thereof. If
object is not an object of the given type, the function always returns
false. If classinfo is a tuple of type objects (or recursively, other
such tuples), return true if object is an instance of any of the types.
If classinfo is not a type or tuple of types and such tuples, a
TypeError exception is raised.
