Hi Anthony, Hi list,
Create the required inheriting metaclass on the fly:
def multi_meta(*clss): """A helper for inheriting from classes with different metaclasses.
Usage: class C(multi_meta(A, B)): "A class inheriting from classes A, B with different
That's actually exactly the code I am trying to avoid. This way, everyone starts writing their own metaclass mixers, which all make strong assumptions about the metaclasses being mixed.
Now there should be only one way of doing things in python, unfortunately I'm not dutch so I don't see it. Maybe it would be a good idea to have such a mixer in the standard library. It would then cache already generated metaclasses. It would also ask the metaclasses on how they like to be mixed.
Not before long, you will read recommendations like "just always write class A(mixer(B, C)), because well, you never now whether B or C have a metaclass". This is exactly why I would like to put it up one more level, make it part of type.
