That's the normal case for classes which have overridable virtual functions
as described at

Why not just use class_builder<CTest,CTest>?

Every constructor you expose must have a hidden initial PyObject* parameter
not described in the parameters to constructor<...>, so:

struct CTest
    CTest(PyObject* self, Arg1 a1, Arg2 a2...)
        : m_self(self)


    PyObject* m_self;

class_builder<CTest,CTest> test(module,"PTest");
