Can anyone problem examples that it’s not an option to continue using the “technically incorrect” `-gnu` suffix on 3.9 and 3.10? From what I understand, te suffix technically works (as in the module will load correctly), it just fails to distinguish the ABI in the name.

If that’s correct, I feel “being able to distinguish between modules built against musl and glibc” should be a feature request and only implemented for 3.11+, while versions 3.10 and prior continue to use `-gnu`. This will also provide a simpler way out of the wheel compatibility problem; projects can distribute different wheels for 3.10 (or lower) and 3.11 (or higher), while the former wheel continues to contain `-gnu`-suffixed modules, and only contain `-musl`-suffixed ones in the latter.
