That's why I voted for PyIter_GenericGetIter and not

PyIter_ means it has to do with iterators; Generic means
it's a default implementation; GetIter identifies which
type slot it implements.

Hmmm... maybe we need a formal grammar for Python/C API
function names, to help settle questions like this...
