As context for anyone not familiar with the time module precedent that
Guido mentioned, we have a C level `PyStructSequence` that provides

So there's potentially a case to be made for:

1. Including the struct sequence header from "Python.h" and making it
part of the stable ABI
2. Documenting it in the C API reference

+1 -- I was just thinking this morning that a C-level named tuple would be nice.

And certainly better than re-implementing it in various places it is needed.

Would there be any benefit in making a C implementation available from Python?
