Actually, on those names: an alternative to your proposal would be to introduce only one new method which can do all types of indexing, depending on a keyword argument, i.e., something like

Have I been overthinking this, eh? Just making it `__getitem__(self, index, mode=...)` and then from `vindex` calling the subclasses `__getitem__(self, index, mode="vector")` or so would already solve the issue almost fully? Only thing I am not quite sure about:
- Is `__getitem__` in some way special to make this difficult (also
considering some new ideas like allowing object[a=4]?
OK; I think the C-side slot cannot get the kwarg likely, but probably you can find a solution for that....
Well, the solution is to use a different name, I think.
