It turns out that "update_slot()" is always called, even when we are not updating a slot name (which is always a special dunder-name). The linear search for names in "update_slots()" is a huge waste of time here, and short-circuiting out of it when the name does not start with "_" cuts the overall update time by 50%. I pushed a PR.

Another improvement would be a sub-linear algorithm for searching the slot name, but that's a bigger change.
