For what? - new style classes already do what I (and apparently
Roberto) would expect. I don't care if old style classes act in a
backward-compatible rather than idealistic way - that is what old
style classes are for.

All Roberto needs to do is make his class a subclass of object and it
will do exactly what he needs - somebody did think about it and that
PEP has apparently already been submitted and implemented a long time
