[New-bugs-announce] [issue32265] Correctly classify builtin static and class methods

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka <storchaka+cpython at gmail.com>:

Currently class and some static methods of builtin types are classified as plain methods. The proposed patch adds types.ClassMethodDescriptorType for unbound class methods of builtin types and makes inspect.classify_class_attrs() correctly classifying static and class methods of builtin types. This results in changing the help() output.

All __new__ methods now are classified as static.

Examples of class methods are dict.fromkeys and int.from_bytes.
