For clarify, main goal is not just only 3rd party extension faster.
Publicate some private APIs is enough for it.
Goals of these PEP 576 (GitHub version) and 580 is making
custom callable type (especially method-like object) faster.
Because most functions and methods are defined with PyMethodDef
and m_methods / tp_methods, these PEPs are not needed for them.
I think main motivation of these PEPs are modern Python usages:
Jupyter notebook + Cython.
Unlike extension module writer, we shouldn't expect user knows
difference between C and Python. That's why Cython want emulate
normal Python function/methods as possible.
