This is not really my area of expertise, but I would have thought if you defined a __special__ method to something illegal (non-callable, or wrong signature) it would be reasonable for Python to raise an error at class definition (or assignment) time, not just later when you try to use it. Somewhere I think the documentation says you are only allowed to use these names as documented.
