If you want to go fancy use a metaclass:
>>> class Base(object):
... class __metaclass__(type):
... def __init__(self, *args):
... type.__init__(self, *args)
... self.per_class = 
>>> class A(Base): pass
>>> A().per_class is A().per_class
>>> class B(Base): pass
>>> B().per_class is B().per_class
>>> A().per_class is B().per_class
