Hm, at the current implementation of upy you're right, but I think you
can do in the resp. module like:

original_numpy_ops = numpy.set_numeric_ops()

[ ... implementation of my_add_object, calling
original_numpy_ops['add'] when it doesn't know what to do else ... ]

new_numpy_ops = copy.copy(original_numpy_ops)
new_numpy_ops['add'] = my_add_object


When you code your my_add_object in such a way that it only act on the
special case you want to hande, e.g.:

class MyAddClass:
    __call__(self, a, b, *args, **kwargs):
        if isinstance(b, MyClass):
            [ ... do something special, preferring MyClass.__radd__
for instance ... ]
            return original_numpy_ops['add'](a, b, *args, **kwargs)
    [ ... some speciality left out ... ]

my_add_object = MyAddClass()

then even many packages may not interfere, given that they are in
principle compatible.  But as mentioned before, coercion will fail if
the functionality isn't implemented which would coerce the objects ...
