Well, from what I have gathered, the reference count does not need to be maintain as far as PyBool objects go.
They are like any other object, i.e. they need reference counting.
It seem to be fine even if the object is set from a argument. Hmmm...
That's a different case. As long as you are sure that someone (better you) owns a reference to the object that you pass as argument, you don't need to increase its refcount just for the call. That's easy to get wrong, though.
Does the below statement have a memory leak?
if ( PyObject_Compare(update_var, Py_False)
Why should it?
Do I need to assign the Py_False first and DECREF it, or is the above snippet ok alone.
I keep being surprised by what some people take their fun in programming from. Good to see that you're getting actual functionality done regardless.
