C code can manipulate __dict__, too, right? It's a pretty common
idiom to get a module dictionary and use PyDict_SetItem().
I'm also curious about the new type-class unification stuff. Is it
possible to modify a C object via something like a C struct and have
that change be visible as a modified attrbute at the Python level?
