What exactly do you want to do?
Why is defining a function too much for you?
I can't see it is your problem since you are a Python programmer
(or you would not ask for metaclass tricks) :-)
Looks like a problem with an interface for users.
Do you want to make the definition
of actions in a GUI simpler for your users?
In the latter case, it is probably simplest to define
a smallish sub-language by a few rules, and create
proper Python functions at initialization time?
Feel free to contact me in private email if I'm right.
