The `new' module can do this:

>>> class C:
...  def m(self):
...   print self
...
>>> c=C()
>>> c.m()
<__main__.C instance at 8111318>
>>> import new
>>> cm=new.instancemethod(C.m.im_func,c,C.m.im_class)
>>> cm()
<__main__.C instance at 8111318>

Be aware that RedHat up to version 5.2 (I think) shipped a Python
without the new module compiled in, so you'll need to recompile or
update from an Andrich rpm if you're lumbered with one of those.
