The current goal from what I can tell for Python is to have all C based modules move away from static types and instead use "PyType_FromSpec" and the variant that specifies base classes.

The only problem is, PyType_FromSpec and it's variant makes the assumption the caller wants "PyType_Type" as the type's metaclass.

Why not add companion methods to them prefixed with "PyMetaType" and have the "PyType" ones internally invoke these new methods with "PyType_Type" as the metaclass (to keep existing behavior and backwards compatibility)
