Is there any further thoughts on including this in 3.6?  Similar to the
recent discussion on OrderedDict namespaces for metaclasses, this would
simplify / enable a number of type factory use cases where proper
metaclasses are overkill. This feature would also be quite nice in say
pandas where the (currently unspecified) field order used in the
definition of frames is preserved in user-visible displays.
