An arg clinic specification such as

    p: object(subclass_of='&PyTuple_Type')

generates slow code using _PyArg_ParseStack() that has to parse a format string like "O!" to decide to make a type check.  Instead, it should directly generate a branch-predictable test for the type check and then call the much quicker function _PyArg_UnpackStack().

See https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9628 for an example of this change giving a 30% speedup.
