I also neglected to mention that if you do this, you need to wrap 
them in Constant() objects, i.e.:

     __builder__.push({..., 'isinstance':Constant(isinstance), ...})

Because builder bindings need to be AST structures, not Python 
values.  (The support code that creates the builder in the first 
place already does this Constant()-wrapping for the original 
context's locals and globals.)
