I'd suggest a variant on this that more closely matches the
PyList_SetItem and PyTuple_SetItem cases: PyModule_SetAttrString

The first two match the signature of PySequence_SetItem, but steal the
reference instead of making a new one, and the same relationship would
exist between PyObject_SetAttrString and the new
