Uh, why not?

>>> class old: pass
>>> def f(self): print self
>>> o=old()
>>> o.z = f.__get__(o, old)
>>> o.z
<bound method old.f of <__main__.old instance at 0x53d78>>

There's a million reason to avoid using old-style classes in new code,
but it doesn't seem to me that this is one of them.  What am I missing?
