This is about an extension type created via `PyType_FromSpec` that overrides `tp_setattro` (minimal example attached). In this case cpython does not let me grab and use the `__setattr__` function "manually". Example:

>>> import demo
>>> mytype_setattr = demo.MyType.__setattr__
>>> i = demo.MyType()
>>> mytype_setattr(i, "foo", "bar")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: can't apply this __setattr__ to object object

I suspect this is related to the loop at the beginning of typeobject.c / hackcheck() that skips over types with Py_TPFLAGS_HEAPOBJECT. (Though removing the loop breaks things like the enum module).
