Isn't there another option? To have the impl call a special "failed"
clinic API, prior to returning failure? And if that wasn't called, then
the return is success. Or does that require the same level of overhead
Reducing the chances of PyErr_Occurred per Armin's suggestion seems good
if the above is not an improvement.
