[IronPython] type.__call__

Okay, I admit I have never imagined Python code like this.

# test.py
class MetaClass(type):
    def __call__(self, *args):
        print args
class Class(object):
    __metaclass__ = MetaClass
Class(1, 2, 3)

Found while trying to run SQLAlchemy (http://sqlalchemy.org/), a
Python ORM library.

There also seems to be a strange import bug, but I couldn't reduce it.

How to reproduce:

import sqlalchemy

Workaround. Swapping following two lines seem to "fix" this with no ill effect:

from sqlalchemy import util
import util as mapperutil


import util as mapperutil
from sqlalchemy import util
