Perhaps "__getdescriptor__" would work as the method name? Yes, it can
technically return a non-descriptor, but the *primary* purpose is to
customise the retrieval of objects that will be checked to see if they're
descriptors. It *won't* be invoked when looking for ordinary attributes in
an instance dict, but *will* be invoked when looking on the class object.
