Currently PyObject_GenericSetDict is part of the stable API, but PyObject_GenericGetDict is not. I noticed this while working on

Because of the symmetry here, it seems appropriate to promote Get.

It was moved out from the limited API in issue13903 (7d95e4072169911b228c9e42367afb5f17fd3db0). I think it was error.

It wasn't removed in 7d95e4072169911b228c9e42367afb5f17fd3db0,
just moved from object.h to dictobject.h
It was still part of the API at that point, I think.

It was moved into the "#ifndef Py_LIMITED_API" block and therefore was effectively excluded from the limited API.

We should fix this error in all maintained versions.

Unfortunately, fixing this won't make the builds work in previous versions, so it can't be backported.

We also need to update the version check in the PR - I left a comment for it.
