__coerce__ vs. new-style classes

Why do new-style classes disable __coerce__()?
It seems cumbersome to have to write a whole set of methods (e.g.
__add__, __radd__, etc.) to get the same effect.  Is there some way to
automatically generate those methods, or are we simply not supposed to
do coercion for some reason?
