With core code sorted out, stdlib and 3rd party extension modules are left to sort out.

I see the following possibilities:

1. leave `_Py_IDENTIFIER()` alone (it is already disallowed in core code)
2. change `_Py_IDENTIFIER()` to create static string objects (then get rid of global state)
3. get rid of `_Py_IDENTIFIER()`
   a. provide a public alternative (needs a PEP)
   b. first work with 3rd party projects to stop using it
