I made some minor updates to PEP 580 (PEP editors: please merge
https://github.com/python/peps/pull/741) and its reference implementation:
- Added a new introductory section explaining the basic idea.
- The C protocol no longer deals with __name__; a __name__ attribute is
required but the protocol does not deal with its implementation.
- The PEP no longer deals with profiling. This means that profiling only
works for actual instances of builtin_function_or_method and
method_descriptor. Profiling arbitrary callables would be nice, but that
is deferred to a future PEP.
The last two items are meant to simplify the PEP (although this is
debatable since "simple" is very subjective).
