Hm, indeed, but I see that module 'abc' is in 'sys.modules', probably it is then only used by ''/'_collections_abc'. This means that the influence of 'ABCMeta' on interpreter start-up time will be smaller than I thought. But still start-up times for projects that actively use ABCs will be influenced by 'ABCMeta'.

But what do you think about making private ABC caches read-only attributes? (They are not documented)
