Why does it need to be a PyCFunction? You could put an actual method
descriptor in the class. In other words, use PyDescr_NewMethod() instead
of PyCFunction_New() + PyInstanceMethod_New(). It's probably going to be
faster too since the instancemethod adds an unoptimized extra level of

Sure, you could implement separate methods like __gt__ in C, but that's
still less efficient than just implementing a specific tp_richcompare
for total_ordering and then having the usual wrapper descriptors for __gt__.
