__conform__ shoud take the precedence over superclass adaptation #456

If an object declares itself conform, its rule should be applied. Currently (psycopg 2.6.2) the adapter first checks if a superclass is conform, then tries to use its rule. This makes impossible e.g. to just implement __conform__ on a tuple subclass and register_adapter() must be called.

In [1]: import psycopg2.extensions as ext

In [2]: class foo(tuple):
   ...:     def __conform__(self, proto):
   ...:         return self
   ...:     def getquoted(self):
   ...:         return 'bar'

In [6]: ext.adapt(foo((1,2,3))).getquoted()
Out[6]: '(1, 2, 3)'

The result should have been the same of:

In [7]: class foo2(object):
    def __conform__(self, proto):
        return self
    def getquoted(self):
        return 'bar'

In [8]: ext.adapt(foo2()).getquoted()
Out[8]: 'bar'

I'd like to fix it. There is a slight possibility to break some code... but I guess only for people who wrote their own __conform__ but they don't want to use it and use the builtin version? Unlikely huh?

Shall we fix it in psycopg3 or in 2.7?
