For C classes like the ufuncs, it seems `__self__` is defined for methods
as well (at least, `np.add.reduce.__self__` gives `np.add`), but not a
`__func__`. There is a `__name__` (="reduce"), though, which means that I
think one can still retrieve what is needed (obviously, this also means
`__array_ufunc__` could have been simpler...)
