I'd like to resolve a long-standing issue of the stable ABI in 3.4:
The issue is that, since PyTypeObject is opaque, module authors cannot
get at tp_free, which they may need to in order to implement tp_dealloc
Rather than providing the proposed specific wrapper for tp_dealloc, I
propose to add a generic PyType_GetSlot function. From a stability point
of view, exposing slot values is uncritical - it's just that the layout
of the type object is hidden.
Any objection to adding this before RC1?
