How to better pickle an extension type

I would like to pickle an extension type (written in pyrex). I have
it working thus far by defining three methods:
# for pickling
... # make 'state_obj'
# for unpickling
This gets the class pickling and unpickling.
However, I'd like to not specify arguments for __init__ (as I do now
in __reduce__), and so not have __init__ invoked during unpickling.
I would like to have the pickling machinery somehow create an
uninitialized object, and then call its __setstate__, where I can re-
create it from 'state_obj'.
Is there a kosher way to do so, that is without me having to have a
special mode in the constructor for when the object is being created
by the unpickler?
