[Python-3000] PEP 3115: Actual use cases for odd metaclasses? Alternate syntax.

Well, I'm explicitly dropping this.   So far no one has pointed out
any use cases that are not equivalent to intercepting an array of the
namespace in the __init__() of a  subclass of type, then calling
type's __init__() on the modified namespace.   Still, I do get a level
of snarky insults that leads me to believe this would involve dealing
with people who like the metaclass definition syntax to be hairy.

Good luck!
