If I grok right, the metaclass will actually inject new synthetic test  
methods into the class definition?

I'm also not real clear on why the synthetic method (test, until it is  
given a new .__name__ and stored in the class under a new name) cannot  
just call 'item' instead of doing getattr (you'd still need to do the  
closure hack of having an 'item=item' optional parameter the way you  
do with name). But its late here and maybe I'm just not seeing  
something obvious...
