Ned, Nick, Victor,

There's an issue with the new PEP 567 (contextvars) C API.

Currently it's designed to expose "PyContext*" and "PyContextVar*"
pointers.  I want to change that to "PyObject*" as using non-PyObject
pointers turned out to be a very bad idea (interfacing with Cython is
particularly challenging).

Is it a good idea to change this in Python 3.7.1?
