[pypy-dev] Unbound method must be called with instance as first argument

Consider following testcase:
class C: pass
class D(C): pass
def m(self): return self
C.m = m
D.m = C.m
CPython runs it okay, but PyPy baffles and raises TypeError, with
Changing 5th line to "D.m = m" and it runs fine. The point is,
"D.m = C.m" should transform C.m from unbound method of class C to
unbound method of class D...
This breaks mailbox.py, among other things. Read how
PortableUnixMailbox is implemented there.
