For example, I have this very complex class:

>>> class C:
...     def met(self):
...             pass
>>> c = C()

I want, from outside to create a new method in it. So, I do the following:

>>> t = type(c.met)
>>> t()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: method expected 2 arguments, got 0

Ouch, it wasn't so easy. I realize myself I need to read the docs.
Where should I look for those docs and/or examples?
