It is common that class have a single base class. PyType_FromModuleAndSpec() is only called with NULL as bases (that means inheriting object) in the stdlib, and PyType_FromSpecWithBases() is called with a 1-tuple as bases all three times (not counting tests).

Since it is a common case, PyErr_NewException() accept both a tuple and a single class as the base argument. I propose to accept a single class also in PyType_FromSpecWithBases() and PyType_FromModuleAndSpec().
