First of all, the consensus in this thread is not to deprecate 

Well, it depends what you mean with "adding methods to objects", that's 
vaguely formulated. Do you mean adding methods at run-time (a.k.a. 
monkey-patching) to a pre-existing class? And is the process of adding 
methods done in C or in Python?

Do you only need PyInstanceMethod_New() or also other 
PyInstanceMethod_XXX functions/macros?
