Google's code search can provide a clue.
It is also helpful because it let you see
typically use cases and whether the API fits well
or whether it is awkward to express common use cases.
All of those observations will help you tweak the API.
Also, it's useful to make similar studies of competing
packages either written in Python or in some other langauge.
