I should clarify that the benchmark did not involve an implementation of 
PEP 576 or PEP 580. It simply shows what kind of regressions one gets 
when *not* implementing something like those PEPs.

So this can't be used to compare PEP 576 versus PEP 580. I still think 
that PEP 576 would slow down bound method calls but without a reference 
implementation, I can only guess. (I know that PEP 576 claims a 
reference implementation but it doesn't correspond to the PEP. I'm 
basing myself on the text of PEP 576, not the "reference implementation".)

No, I did not. This is just benchmarking the difference between tp_call 
and more specialized call functions (In Python 2.7, that is
