I'd suggest a small improvement: _A as a class name isn't very nice.  
Replace the inner class statement with:
_A = type(self.__class__.__name__ + '_autoprops', (self.__class__,), {})

A problem with this approach is that instances aren't pickleable (perhaps  
that could be solved using __reduce__)
