I posted a solution based on just this idea 1 minute ago!-)

The complete version, which should work but I haven't tested:

import new
def super(klass):
    try: return klass._cached_super
    except:
        return klass.__dict__.getdefault(
            new.classobj('super_%s'%klass.__name__,
            klass.__bases__, {})
