I'm with Antoine here - we want to be *very* conservative with what we expose through the limited API. Due to the ABI compatibility promise, anything exposed that way is very hard to change.

Keeping things out of the limited API isn't really an issue - it just means that anyone that wants to use them needs to rebuild their extensions for each new version of the C API (just as they do now).

Addings things to the stable ABI later is easy though - that's why we had Martin take all the Py_buffer related stuff out of the initial version of the limited API.
