Hmmm, seems to me we'd need copies of the function object for this purpose:
For the stated use-case of serialization, only one copy would be necessary, and besides - even *I* don't use idioms as weird as the one you are suggesting very often ;).
I think it would be reasonable to assign im_class only to functions defined in class scope. The only serialization that would break in that case is if your example had a 'del f' at the end.
