> Binary compatibility of an embedding-only struct is totally unnecessary, as posted on the thread.

Well, I'm fine with removing PyConfig.struct_size right now. I wrote two PRs to remove it:

* PR 16500 (code)
* (PEP)

We can still add a similar "version" ("struct_size" or whatever) field later *if* we want to provide a stable ABI for embedded Python.
