Ah you dislike the additional [clinic input] sections?

It's kind of strange when you have to convert existing code, when once
the code uses AC, I prefer AC to separated documentation variables. It
helps to keep docstrings more up to date, and it helps to enhance the
API (ex: allow keywords, rename parameters to better names, etc.). It
also helps to make the documentation closer to the code, which is IMHO
a good thing :-)

IMHO the PyArg_ParseXXX() calls and their "kwlist" static variable are
"unreadable", and I'm happy to be able to hide them!

FYI decimal-2.patch replaces PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords() with
_PyArg_ParseStackAndKeywords() with static _PyArg_Parser object. This
object only decides keyword names once and is more efficient to parse
arguments. It explains partially the speedup. Only partially because
bm_telco only calls the .quantize() method, and it only uses
positional arguments (no keyword arguments) ;-)
