Do you also advocate deprecating PySequence_Check()? Both are useful
APIs to know what you're dealing with.

As for the "clean C version of the ABCs", I'm afraid we could wait quite
a bit, since that's a lot more work and nobody seems really interested
in the matter.

Well, I'm not proposing to backport it, but to fix things in 3.2.
