I tried my luck with a very simple version of a custom isinstance(). I
wrote it like this:

def _is_instance(object, extensionclass):
    if object.__class__ == extensionclass:
        return 1
        return 0

This uses the built-in repr() for extensionclass, which will match an
object's __class__ if it is an instance of that extensionclass. This
worked for simple test cases, but unfortunately not for the purpose I
needed this for. My problem is that I have a vector of ClusterVars, where
each object is of type ClusterVar, and not of type CatVar or ContVar
anymore. Somewhere along the way I lost that information. Once I figure
out how to get back the original type, I hope the above code will do the
trick for me.
