inspect.signature(object) works fine in my (not yet posted) latest #20189 patch.

inspect.signature(type) doesn't work, because it's not clear what the signature for type should be.  There's the one-argument and three-argument approaches.  This is technically true:

    "(object_or_name, [bases, dict])"

a) it's painful to look at,
b) I can't communicate the idea of an "optional group" in an inspect.Signature object right now (although I guess we're going to hash that out somewhere, which is good).

If we can agree on a good signature for inspect.signature(type), I can make it happen.
