looks like you've added a lot more than mutability :-)

Exactly -- when this comes up, I tend to think "I should make a mutable
integer and put it on PyPi" -- but then I realize that the use case at hand
is better handled another way. I have yet to encounter a use case where is
seems like the best way to handle it. IT's mostly people trying to write C#
(or another language) in Python :-)
But a good exercise in writing code to emulate types in python....
