In the documentation for PEP 590, @encukou used the term “static type” to mean the opposite of a heap type. I wasn’t familiar with that term, but I understood what it meant. The main documentation page uses the term “extension type” instead, although “static type” also occurs in the manual.
Should this be made consistent?
While I’m at it, shouldn’t it be “extension class” to use Python 3 terminology?
