It is created by PyDict_New() and PyDict_SetItem().

Yes, I was really thinking about PyDict_New().

Well, I was thinking about CPython code. Anyway, maybe there's a way to not break old code:
def hello(name: str, **kwargs: frozendict) -> str:
# code

In the meanwhile I tried to optimize iteration. It seems also that iteration can be faster:

I also done some other changes later, but for some reason I get a segfault now:
