Attached PR replaces PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords() with
_PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywordsFast() to optimize the constructor of the
builtin types:

* bool: bool_new()
* bytes: bytes_new()
* complex: complex_new()
* float: float_new()
* int: long_new()
* list: list_init()
* str: unicode_new()
* tuple: tuple_new()

When using keywords, the speedup is between 1.55x faster and 1.92x faster.

When using only positional arguments, the speedup is between 1.07x faster and 1.14x faster.
