Well, my motivation is to better understand what's going on
in typeobject.c.  There are a number of unclear sections (to
put it mildly) and undocumented assumptions and this makes
it hard to work out whether things (like this) are bugs or not.

I'm now fairly confident that the line
"compatible_for_assigment(new_base, self->tp_base)" is
asking the right question (and, thus, your patch is not
really correct, though I doubt it's actually unsafe).  The
spelling is a bit funny though.

This issue in and of itself isn't that high a priority, but
understanding (and documenting that understanding) of
typeobject.c does seem worth working on...
