docs.python.org/dev/c-api/module.html Currently doesn't say much about m_size, except that setting it to -1 means "no memory needed".

m_size == -1 has a much more important use that is not documented: it signals the import machinery that the module should not be ever re-initialized. This has to be documented explicitly.
