Hmmm. So it would look sort of like:

>>> class Foo: pass
>>> def foo( *args ):
...     print 'foo:', args
>>> import new
>>> bar = new.instancemethod( foo, None, Foo )
>>> bar
<unbound method Foo.foo>
>>> f = Foo()
>>> bar = new.instancemethod( foo, f, Foo )
>>> bar
<bound method Foo.foo of <__main__.Foo instance at 0x414328>>
