I'd ignore it.  I never understood it and never had
any need for it anyway.  New-style classes and metaclasses
were a complicated solution to an unimportant problem in
my opinion.  And also a fiendish way to make code
inscrutible -- which I thought was more of a Perl thing
than a Python thing, or should be.

I must be missing some of the deeper issues here.  Please
educate me.
