My guess is that support for weakrefs and/or RPC proxies (something
with which I have a lot of experience, so I appreciate the point)
would want to use some kind of "sneaky" mechanism like that.  We
should probably make sure that there's an easy-to-use standard
"sneaky" mechanism -- perhaps just lying about the __class__ (in a
safe way) is enough.
