> PEP 523 is quite vague, but the rationale indicates that exposing `eval_frame` is for "a method-level JIT". PEP 523 did not suggest adding an API.

I disagree, the PEP is quite explicit: "Third-party code may then set their own frame evaluation function instead to control the execution of Python code." That's the whole point of the PEP: let third-party code set eval_frame to use the feature.

The PEP was written in 2016, when the PyInterpreterState structure was part of the public C API. But PyInterpreterState was moved to the internal C API, after the PEP was approved.
