I don't know.

I don't know, but I suspect you're aiming the gun in that general

The usual method for this is to subclass from a class you define in
Python, then you can change the base classes of that python class
easily.  For this you need to make a python product with your class in
it and initialize the product, registering the class as subclassable. 
There's probably a how-to on it somewhere, otherwise you can check out
lib/python/Products/ZCatalog/ to see how the ZCatalog class
is made ZClass subclassable.
