In the end, somewhere inside the "dance", you are checking for
`__array_function` - it would seem to me that at that point you know
exactly where you are, and it would not be difficult to something like
types[new_type] += [where_i_am]
(where here I assume types is a defaultdict(list))  - has the set of types
in keys and locations as values.

But easier to discuss whether this is easy with some sample code to look at!
