A sip type isn't completely ready until the meta-type's __init__ method
has run. Therefore if you want to look at staticMetaObject before an
instance of the type is created then reimplement __init__ rather than

class MetaKlass(QtCore.pyqtWrapperType):
    def __init__(self, name, bases, d):
        QtCore.pyqtWrapperType.__init__(self, name, bases, d)

        meta = self.staticMetaObject
