+1. I prefer that change, as using subclasses of `type` as if they were type itself never made sense to me. This shouldn't break existing code, but if it does, it was either a concealed bug or a very bad idea to begin with, and should be fixed either way.

Attached patch implements Eryk's suggestion. I haven't found any tests that checked for subclasses of type specifically (except tests testing for metaclass stuff), and I haven't added any either.
