I was trying to create a class that didn't have any references to itself to test issue39382 and ran the following code:

class Meta(type):
	def mro(cls):
		return type.mro(cls)[1:]
class X(metaclass=Meta):
	    pass

This produced an extremely cryptic error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#89>", line 1, in <module>
    class X(metaclass=Meta):
TypeError: super(type, obj): obj must be an instance or subtype of type

While what I am trying to do may well not be supported, the error message referencing the `super` function, which I didn't use, is not helpful.
