That's hard to do although I suppose not impossible. We would be
trying to test the interpreter shutdown procedure. I suppose on
plaforms that support it we could fork a subprocess and then inspect
the output from __del__ methods.

Why not just expose the module-teardown procedure and call it on a module, then inspect the state there as it's being torn down?
