ok, then one answer jump in my brain:
there's a "place" where the interpreter load the __builtins__  package?
obviously __builtins__.str cannot be substitute with a customized one after
the __builtins__ load ,
but before load?
if the interpreter load __builtins__ in some place i can translate
with a __builtins__.mystr before that interpreter load __builtins__

is it possible?

Thanks a lot!
