> What is the status of Argument Clinic? Is it something "public" or not?

No, it is for for internal CPython use only. It lacks some features (support 
of var-positional and var-keyword parameters, optional parameters without 
default value), the syntax of positional-only parameters is not officially 
accepted still, and future optimizations can require incompatible changes.

Only when all CPython builtins and extensions be converted to Argument Clinic,
PEP 457 (or an alternative) be accepted, Argument Clinic issues be resolved, 
we could say it stable enough. For now even Argument Clinic tests are broken.
