See, and in this specific case, they can't, because they are used
only in a debug build. Furthermore, they all have names that are
unlikely to collide. Even if they get a _Py_ prefix, there could
still be a conflict.

No. They don't require the Py_ prefix, because they already
have the asdl_ prefix.
