gumtree, would you be interested in working on a patch for this feature-
request?  As mentioned above, the necessary changes are already present 
in 3.x, so all that's entailed is figuring out which bits of the 
Object/complexobject.c in the py3k source need to be transferred to the 
trunk, and making sure that everything's properly tested.

Alternatively, could you explain in a little more detail why this change 
is important to you?  Subclassing complex doesn't seem like a very 
common thing to want to do, so I'm curious about your use case.
