      Description

      We have a singleton metaclass based on type(QtCore.QObject) in the __call__
      method we create a new instance of the class and return it

      def __call__(self, *args, **kwargs):
          instance = self.__new__(self, *args, **kwargs)
          instance.__init__(*args, **kwargs)
          return instance

      or, if you want the one-liner version:

      QtCore.QObject.__new__(QtCore.QObject, "", (), {})

      the error obtained running this code on Python2 is:

      TypeError: PySide2.QtCore.QObject.__new__(PySide2.QtCore.QObject) is not safe, use object.__new__()

      the same one-liner works on Python3, I think it is related to PYSIDE-816 and heap types.
