Post as a class has more advantages, especially if it were to include
all template tags for posts. It could be $post->excerpt() instead of
the_excert() and you know it can only be the except of that post and not
from the global state of $post. Would be one less point of confusion to
not stumble on, especially if you're new and haven't yet figured out
that the global $post is super important.
