It seems to me that a big part of the problem is that Cython feels entitled to use arbitrary CPython internals.
I think the reason for this is that Cython is trying to be two things at once: (1) an interface between Python and C, (2) a compiler that turns Python code into fast C code.
To address this there could be an option to choose between "compatible code" and "fast code", with the former restricting itself to the stable API.
