Detailed Description

Metaclass for defining Abstract Base Classes (ABCs).

Use this metaclass to create an ABC.  An ABC can be subclassed
directly, and then acts as a mix-in class.  You can also register
unrelated concrete classes (even built-in classes) and unrelated
ABCs as 'virtual subclasses' -- these and their descendants will
be considered subclasses of the registering ABC by the built-in
issubclass() function, but the registering ABC won't show up in
their MRO (Method Resolution Order) nor will method
implementations defined by the registering ABC be callable (not
even via super()).
