Or write the needed descriptor and wrap the function in (Q&D, needs a
lot of improvements):

def CFuncWrapper(func, instance):
    def _wrappedCFunc(*args, **kw):
        return func(instance, *args, **kw)
    return _wrappedCFunc

class CFuncMethodType(object):
    def __init__(self, func):
        self.func = func

    def __get__(self, instance, cls=None):
        if instance:
            return CFuncWrapper(self.func, instance)
            assert(cls is not None)
            return self.func

>>> class Foo(object): pass
>>> Foo.isa = CFuncMethodType(isinstance)
>>> Foo.isa(Foo(), Foo)
>>> f.isa(list)
>>> f.isa(Foo)
