There's no such thing as an "original method" - what's stored as an 
attribute of the class is a plain function. FWIW, you can get at this 
function quite easily - via the im_func attribute of the method.

Now what I wonder is what you want to do with the internal identifier of 
a function or method ? (please not that the use of the memory address as 
an id is purely an implementation detail of CPython).
