The PyEval_Call*() APIs indeed predate the PyObject_Call*() ones. The PyObject_Call*() APIs came into existence when the abstract layer was added in Python 1.3.

The PyObject_Call*() APIs lacked a way to call an object with keyword arguments for a long time. I guess that's what most people continued to use the PyEval_Call*() ones. The latter also provide better protection against wrong parameters. The interpreter itself used them interchangeably.
