Rather than introduce "fixes" that break code and hurt performance, I think it would be better to deprecate PyMapping_Check() and wait for a fast, clean C version of the ABCs (that is supposed to be our one obvious way to do it).

FWIW, the spreadsheet example has been around for years and I know of more than one private company that has made heavy use of code modeled on that example (not for spreadsheets, but as a hook for eval).  So, I don't think the new "keys" check should be backported.
