Here are benchmark results. Sorry, but I'm not really convinced that this specialization is worth it.

The change adds yet another calling convention where we already have METH_NOARG, METH_VARARGS, METH_O, METH_NOARG | METH_KEYWORDS, METH_FASTCALL...

I'm ok to add a new calling convention but only if it's faster on more benchmarks or if it uses much less memory. It doesn't seem to be the case with the current change.


Differences of at least 5%:
