It's actually "initfunc" not "initnew".

The Python2 requires the ".so" to export a function named "init<module_name>", 
but the headers define "initproc" and "initnew" typedefs. 

So attempts to include modules named like this (happened for proc in real code), 
got a collision with these. On Python3, these collisions are avoided by more 
special names to be exported that do not collide.
