Adding getters or setters for something that was previously doable that we accidentally took away from users is not an expansion of semantics; it's fixing a backwards-compatibility break in a way that lets us keep the goal of making PyInterpreterState opaque.

I'm considering this issue at a stalemate and so I'm going to loop in python-dev to help settle this. If that still locks up then we can bring this to the steering council.
