New submission from Mateusz Loskot firstname.lastname@example.org:
The chapter '2. Defining New Types" in the Python 3.2 documentation  does not cover all important elements, especially in the subsection 2.1.4. Subclassing other types.
The accepted PEP 253  provides much more detailed and thorough explanation for Python C API users willing to define and subclass new types, than the official manual.
I'd like to suggest update of the manual with information enclosed in the PEP 253. In fact, the PEP's sections like
* Preparing a type for subtyping * Creating a subtype of a built-in type in C
could be copied with little editing, IMHO.
The PEP 253 really seems to be a must-read document for Python C API users.

Similar request has been rejected in response to the Issue 621526 , but I'm not proposing to include PEP into docs, but to update and improve docs with material discussed in accepted PEPs.
