Well, I have thought that somewhere further down the way some (though
not all) of the wrapping code could be factored out in some kind of
metaclass, and then I would just set __metaclass__ at module level. But
since I am still at the entrance, I am kinda polling for ideas.

Assuming that my description of the problem is enough, how would you go
about writing a metaclass as a general wrapper?
