In the original hook, you couldn't use a Python object as the base
class, only a C function, so it was restricted to C only.

Today, you don't have to create a class and make an instance of it. A
plain Python function would do as well.

Of course, you still don't have to like it :-)

If you want to use proper metaclasses, I think you should use Python 2.2.
