Speaking as the father of Argument Clinic, I disagree. My goal with
Clinic is to convert every function in CPython whose semantics can be
expressed with a PyArg_ parsing function.
For example, curses.window.addstr could be converted just fine. Its
signature is exactly the same as curses.window.addch which has already
socket.sendto eludes me for now--but I haven't given up yet.
