original descriptor with a "custom" descriptor. I just wondered why this
custom "nostatget" descriptor didn't get called even though the new
nostat.__get__ didn't seem to be its old self (so quite likely it was
the new, nostatget, descriptor).
But Bruno pointed out that I need instancemethod for that, not plain
