I don't have objections against making the METH_FASTCALL method calling
convention public. But only for positional-only parameters, the protocol
for keyword parameters is more complex and still can be changed.
We should to provide also APIs for calling functions using this protocol
(_PyObject_FastCall) and for parsing arguments (_PyArg_ParseStack). We
may want to bikeshed names and the order of arguments for them.
Calling API can be determined later. Even without the API, methods can be called faster from Python core.
But for parsing API, you're right. It should be public with METH_FASTCALL. Only positional arguments can be received without it.
