A) this is more of a topic for comp.lang.python, but as long s we're here...
B) We can't help you without knowing what it is you're trying to do. No
one needs to "change the base class of a class" for it's own sake.
Clearly, you have something you need to accomplich, and you thought that
might be a way to do it. If you tell us what you need to accomplish, we
might be able to suggest a way to do it.
C) just guessing, but maybe what you want is a factory function, which
will create the class you need on the fly. A search for "factory" and
python should get you something.
