This is the discussion where it was named:
https://discuss.python.org/t/poll-what-is-your-favorite-name-for-the-new-include-subdirectory/477?u=ammaraskar
and the bug explaining the motivation: https://bugs.python.org/issue35134

>(and why the additional "pycore_XXX.h" naming convention for some ofthose files?)

"* Include/internal/pycore_*.h is the "internal" API"
