How to copy a ClassObject?

Hi all,

how would one make a copy of a class object? Let's say I have:
  class First:
    name = 'First'

And then I write:
  tmp = First

then 'tmp' becomes just a reference to First, so if I write 
tmp.name = "Tmp", there goes my First.name. So, how to make 'tmp' a copy 
of First, I tried using copy.copy and copy.deepcopy, but that doesn't 
work.

P.S.
Yes, I can do a:
  class tmp(First):
      pass

but I'd rather make a copy than a subclass.

Thanks.
