> I think PyMem_Malloc() should guarantee alignof(max_align_t).

Do you mean the C++ std::max_align_t? Does C99 have something like that?

The Linux malloc() manual page says:

"The malloc() and calloc() functions return a pointer to  the  allocated memory,  which  is  suitably  aligned for any built-in type."

But I don't know the list of C built-in types.
