I understand this is indeed unintuitive. The reason list objects support
the C "mapping protocol" in 3.x is that it is how slicing of lists (and
tuples, for that matter) is implemented. Perhaps the documentation
should carry a warning about this.

Unfortunately, right now there is no easy way in C to check that an
object implements a given ABC.
