I have a need to create class instance without invokking the class' __init__ 

Were I using old-style classes, I'd  use new.instance() function. However, I 
am using new-style classes and new.instance() complain "TypeError: 
instance() argument 1 must be classobj, not type" ...

So my question is, how to replicate new.instance() functionality with new
