Okay, here's an interesting approach.  I've been playing with __of__ a
lot lately, so why not see what else it can do? :-)

In your class that needs to be upgraded, add this method, modifying it
as needed:

  def __of__(self, parent):
    if (self.isNotUpgraded()):
    return MyClass.inheritedAttribute('__of__')(self, parent)

When any user walks up to the object, you will have the opportunity to
perform the upgrade.
