*If* bytecodehacks could help, metaclasses could be used to make
calling them neat and clean.  The idea is that during class
instantiation the metaclass would, using bytecodehacks, rewrite all of
the class's methods.  This might confuse the poor guy who comes along
and tries to derive a new class from one of these 'self less'.
