Mea culpa:  Here super is _not_ a good idea, and I had tried that
and recoded, but cut and pasted the wrong code.  I just noticed
that I had done so this morning.

     class Initialized(ClassBase):
         @classmethod
         def _init_class(class_):
             class_.a, class_.b = 1, 2
             ClassBase._init_class()

     print Initialized.a, Initialized.b

Much better.  There is probably a way to get to the MRO, but for now,
this should do.
