Oh sorry, I think I put this email together too quickly. I was writing
down a bunch of thoughts I had earlier but hadn't written down. I think I
was mixing this up in my head with overriding __getitem__ for the module
namespace dict and __class_getitem__ from PEP 560, which only gets called
if the metaclass doesn't implement __getitem__ (IIRC).
But I did have another thought related to this. I was wondering whether the
lack of passing the module to the methods as `self` would harm future
attempts to generalize these ideas.
