Fred & I had a little whiteboard session.  The docs indeed disagree
with the code, and we agree that the code should be fixed.  This
requires some work: we'll have to introduce a new kind of descriptor
that wraps a PyMethodDef pointer and creates a PyCFunction in response
to the tp_descr_get call with the type as self.  Fred will do this.
