Oh, well...

isbuiltin(cyfunction) *does* return False. However, ismethoddescriptor(cyfunction) returns True, because Cython's functions bind as methods and thus have a "__get__()" (but no __set__()). Therefore, _signature_is_builtin(cyfunction) returns True, and the Signature.from_builtin(cyfunction) code path is taken and fails.

So, once again:

If the intention is to test that a callable has a "__text_signature__", then the code should test for the existance of "__text_signature__". It should *not* try to test for types that may or may not have such an attribute, and then just fail if it surprisingly does not find it.
