I won't comment on this, but to get the extra checks you could arrange
that ceval.c is compiled with CHECKEXC defined. "./configure
BASECFLAGS=-DCHECKEXC" did the trick for me.

Exactly. You cannot return NULL (or -1 for other kind of functions), so
no exception may be raised; PyErr_Clear() calls are necessary.
