There is already PEP 3118 though.

I would focus on the 'polymorphic C API' spin. PyObject_GetItem is polymorphic, but there is no standard way for 3rd party libraries to make such functions.

So let's find a C API that's NOT about arrays at all and show how some polymorphism may help.

Of course there's a couple of non-array Cython usecases too.
