> I understand Stefan to (reasonably) want 1 api instead of 2.

Absolutely. However, I guess the underlying reasoning here is that there
are other callables, too, so it's not worth making just two kinds of them
look the same, even if both are functions and even if both are part of
CPython itself.

As soon as there is easy-to-use support for annotations in C implemented
functions (for use outside of CPython and Cython), I'll agree that the need
for changing anything in CPython's builtin functions type isn't really
worth bothering about any more in the future, given that the Signature
object is the designated unifying API.
