> Passing the metaclass as a slot seems like the right idea for this API, though I recall there being some concern about the API (IIRC, mixing function pointers and data pointers doesn't work on some platforms?)

PyType_Slot is defined as a void* (not a function pointer):

So putting a PyTypeObject* into a slot would appear to be more kosher than function pointers.

Overall, a slot seems like a great first approach.  It doesn't require any new functions, which seems like a plus.  If the any linking issues a la tp_base are seen, a new function could be added later.
