'self' disappearing

Answering my own question:
Only a class attribute that is of FunctionType will be automatically 
converted into a bound method by the Python interpreter. If I wanted more 
control, I would have to do it through metaclasses.

However, my (working) approach now is to return a function instead of a 
class instance, using this simple closure:

	def make_funwrapper(fun):
	    def funwrapper(*args, **kwds):
	        print 'Calling', fun.__name__
	        fun(*args, **kwds)
	    return funwrapper

Note that this requires Python 2.2 or 'from __future__ import 
nested_scopes' because I'm using 'fun' in the nested function.
