Thanks for the hint! This enabled me to step through all of it with pdb,
which turns up zope/interface/declarations.py:1249

  def getObjectSpecification(ob):
      provides = getattr(ob, '__provides__', None)
      if provides is not None:
          return provides

So it seems that __provides__ is part of the zope.interface mechanics,
and if unset that attribute should not exist -- but when using __slots__
it always exists, namely as a 'member_descriptor' object.

I'll try and see whether I can come up with a way for zope.interface to
do the Right Thing(tm) in this situation.
