I'm pretty sure the OP intended:

    I need a deepcopy of __dict__, except don't copy instances
    at all (instead, have the copy refer to the original instance
    directly).

That's not what was said, so some sketchy inference is involved.
Eventually the OP will followup, I think, and straighten things out.
