If im_func were set to the class where the function was defined, I could definitely avoid the second part of the trawling (not sure about the first yet, since I need to get at the function object).
Instead of waiting for unbound methods to change their functionality, just create a metaclass that sticks the attribute you want on the function objects.
Yep - that's one approach I've considered. I've also thought about modifying the code objects, which would mean I could grab the base class directly.
It's definitely not the most compelling use case in the world ;)
