I just thought of another risk inherit in this approach.  If the extension
module is composed of more than one C file, the extension author may
inadvertently compile the file defining the PyModuleDef in Unicode-agnostic
mode but compile another file in Unicode-sensitive mode.  Then they would
have a Unicode-sensitive extension as Unicode-agnostic, which would lead to
mysterious crashes if the Unicode settings are mismatched. :-(
