>Wow, this is amazing. I just found that this is now faster than slots. 

Not only that: is even faster than the highly-tuned namedtuple access descriptors that used to be the faster access to an attribute:

3.9 results
  17.6 ns       read_classvar_from_class
  16.3 ns       read_classvar_from_instance
  23.2 ns       read_instancevar
  19.7 ns       read_instancevar_slots
  17.9 ns       read_namedtuple
  39.2 ns       read_boundmethod

Now this is the faster way to get an attribute:

3.10 results
  17.9 ns       read_classvar_from_class
  16.9 ns       read_classvar_from_instance
  14.1 ns       read_instancevar
  20.0 ns       read_instancevar_slots
  18.0 ns       read_namedtuple
  40.7 ns       read_boundmethod

> Should we mention that in What's New?

Good idea!. I will prepare a PR complementing the current paragraph.
