prep my types for 2.2?

i've got several extension types that i'd like to get prepared for
python-2.2. currently i have a function that constructs the object and a
"type" variable available..
type(Myobject()) is MyobjectType
from what i can see in python-2.2, these become the same thing. instead
of a function to construct my objects, i just make it so you can call
the type directly. i've been browsing over the 2.2 sourcecode recently
(looking at the int object). i've got a couple questions..
first, i can't figure out exactly what function slots and TP flags i
need to use to enable this behavior? did i overlook this in the docs
somewhere? (couldn't find)
the other question, what is the best way to make this work for both
python-2.2 and earlier releases? it looks like if i hook something nice
for 2.2 up in the Type structure, that won't work for python-2.1. so it
2.1 i'll need to fallback to the classes function/type like i already
have? can i make it so python-2.1 can construct objects from the Type?
