[Python-Dev] frozenset C API?

I'm looking at building a "frozenset" instance as a return value from
a C function, and the C API seems ridiculously clumsy.  Maybe I'm
misunderstanding it.  Apparently, I need to create a list object, then
pass that to PyFrozenSet_New(), then decref the list object.

Is that correct?

What I'd like is something more like

     PyFrozenSet_NEW(int) => PySetObject *
     PyFrozenSet_SET_ITEM(s, i, v)

Any idea why these aren't part of the API?
