[snip..] 4. I want help(MyNamedTuple) to work well; in particular it should display the right module name. That means that in the m dictionary you should add a __module__ attribute: __module__ = sys._getframe(1).f_globals['__name__']
If this is being considered for inclusion in the standard library, using _getframe' hackery will guarantee that it doesn't work with alternative implementations of Python (like IronPython at least which doesn't have Python stack frames).
At least wrapping it in a try/except would be helpful.
All the best,
