The symbol is exported by libpython:

$ objdump -T /lib64/|grep PyLong_Type
000000000030de00 g    DO .data	00000000000001a0  Base        PyLong_Type

A C extension can use a reference to PyLong_Type.

Did you read my rationale (first message)? Do you mean that per-interpreter GIL is not worth it?


A first step would be to expose "CheckExact" macros as function calls in the limited C API.
