Oh, I'm sorry, I misunderstood the issue. Changes in the *private* API must not be documented. In short, you must not use the private API :-)

If you really have to use the private API, be prepared for incompatible changes in new Python releases. For the gdb issue, gdb should use an #ifdef using PY_VERSION_HEX. Depending on the Python version, the number of parameters changes.

Miro: Let's move the discussion to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1577396 to see how to fix gdb ;-)
