You are right, there is really just one mention of that in the code base,
so it's easy to fix for non-CPython. Doing this, I noticed a bug in the
standard declarations of CPython's C-API that Cython ships for user code,
which leads to an accidental and useless reference to PyBoolObject and
PyComplexObject in the generated modules. I'll find a way to fix those,
too, so don't worry about them.
