New submission from Erlend Egeberg Aasland <erlend.aasland at innova.no>:

See https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/25748#discussion_r623849521:
"What do you think of adding support.assert_disallow_instanciation(type, *args) function which would check for TypeError but also check the error message? TypeError is quite generic and it might hide a bug."

Ref. bpo-43916.
