[New-bugs-announce] [issue45123] PyAiter_Check & PyObject_GetAiter issues

New submission from Yury Selivanov <yselivanov at gmail.com>:

Per discussion on python-dev (also see the linked email), PyAiter_Check should only check for `__anext__` existence (and not for `__aiter__`) to be consistent with `Py_IterCheck`.

While there, I'd like to rename PyAiter_Check to PyAIter_Check and PyObject_GetAiter to PyObject_GetAIter (i -> I).  First, we should apply CamelCase convention correctly, here "async" and "iter" are separate words; second, "Aiter" is marked as invalid spelling by spell checkers in IDEs which is annoying.

See https://mail.python.org/archives/list/python-dev@python.org/message/BRHMOFPEKGQCCKEKEEKGSYDR6NOPMRCC/ for more details.
