Step 1.  Admit you have a problem.

Hello, my name is Skip and I am metaclass-unaware.  I've been programming in
Python for about ten years and I have yet to write a metaclass.  At first I
thought it was just that metaclasses were new to the language, but now as
more and more people use them and proclaim their widespread benefits, I have
come to realize that through years of abuse my brain has become addicted to
classic classes.
