Thanks! Most of the deleted types *are* builtins (e.g. object, int). I assume the reasoning was just that if you wanted the type you could just write type(Ellipsis), type(None) etc.

But that's too dynamic for static checkers, so we want *some* stable name for those back. Do any of the other deleted types strike you as possibly needing to come back?
