I don't really understand either why object_new() checks the arguments, not object_init():

static int
object_init(PyObject *self, PyObject *args, PyObject *kwds)
	return 0;

/* If we don't have a tp_new for a new-style class, new will use this one.
   Therefore this should take no arguments/keywords.  However, this new may
   also be inherited by objects that define a tp_init but no tp_new.  These
   objects WILL pass argumets to tp_new, because it gets the same args as
   tp_init.  So only allow arguments if we aren't using the default init, in
   which case we expect init to handle argument parsing. */
static PyObject *
object_new(PyTypeObject *type, PyObject *args, PyObject *kwds)
	if (type->tp_init == object_init && (PyTuple_GET_SIZE(args) ||
	     (kwds && PyDict_Check(kwds) && PyDict_Size(kwds)))) {
				"default __new__ takes no parameters");
		return NULL;
	return type->tp_alloc(type, 0);
