Quick question, since the PEP doesn't say it explicitly. I assume that the
builtin function type would be subclassable, right? That would suggest that
it also needs a type flag bit for fast type checking.

Basically, subclassing still seems necessary in order to support closure
state, non-constant default arguments, etc.
