This is essentially the same problem that if you, for instance, subclass
int as myint, you need to override (wrap) *every* method to get them to 
return myints instead of ints.

class myint(int):
     def __add__(self, other): return myint(self+other)

In the OP's case, if the original class is in python, one might be able 
to just change the __class__ attribute. But I would make sure to have a 
good set of tests in any case.
