overriding __call__ in metaclasses

When overriding __call__ in metaclasses, is there a preferred way to go
about getting the actual instance?  The only example I can find in a
not-very-thorough search is in test_descr.py, which just uses a dummy

    class _instance(object):

Is that acceptable in general?
