It is easy to implement a function in C. But there is a difference 
between functions implemented in Python and C -- the latter are not 
descriptors. They behave like static methods when assigned to a class 
attribute, i.e. there is no implicit passing of the "self" argument.

Yes, this is what I want to do. I did not do this only because 
implementing method-like functions which which do not belong to concrete 
class implemented in C is not convention. But PyInstanceMethod_New() 
should help.
