> The PyAPI_FUNC makes it part of the public *API*. It needs to be source- compatible; the number of arguments can't change. Could yo u add a new function?

Unfortunately, no: new functions cannot be added easily because the new field that receives is needed and is a complicated field created by the compiler. The old API is not enough anymore and making a compatibility layer is a huge complexity.
