I wish if it were that simple :).

Here is a longer description - I have a function that given input creates a
custom class and returns it back. The user is free to subclass that (even
more, he should do that), and of course he will make instances of those
subclasses. Now, my question is how to keep track of subclasses and their
instances, without the need for user interaction (appending them to a list,
or adding to dictionary)?
