Assigning to __class__ makes sense for objects that allocate a dictionary
for storage of attributes or have slots allocated to hold the values. The
heap type error is due to a missing flag in the class definition and could
be corrected. However, it may not be the best thing to do. Calling
B(array) is certainly safer, although a bit more expensive.
