It may be worth considering C-API extensions written in C++. Flexible array members are not part of the C++ standard, although GCC, Clang, and MSVC support them as an extension. GCC and Clang will issue warnings with `-Wpedantic` and MSVC will issue warnings with `/Wall`. Currently, C++ code that includes `<Python.h>` is warning-free in GCC (g++) even with `-Wpedantic`. That won't be true after this change, unless Py_LIMITED_API is defined.

Note that GCC also explicitly supports trailing one-element arrays (the current pattern) as an extension.
