> see how type_new also computes the metaclass from the base classes.

As you can see from my first message, I originally considered PyType_FromSpecEx(PyObject *meta, PyType_Spec *spec) without bases.  (In fact I was unaware of the recent addition of PyType_FromSpecWithBases.)  Maybe the original signature makes more sense than the one in the patch.  Explicitly setting a metaclass is most useful for the most basic type. On the other hand, a fully general function may eventually replace both PyType_FromSpec and PyType_FromSpecWithBases for most uses.
