> 1a. Declare both functions equally acceptable. Remove comments claiming that PyUnicode_AsUTF8AndSize() should be avoided.
> 1b. 1a, and change the implementation of PyUnicode_AsUTF8AndSize() to avoid allocating the string twice if it needs to be materialized, so that PyUnicode_AsUTF8AndSize() is never significantly slower than PyUnicode_AsUTF8String().

I think 1b is the best approach.

PyUnicode_AsUTF8AndSize() is optimized already. See GH-18327.
And it becomes limited API. See bpo-41784.

So we should just remove the outdated comments.
