There's some code in this that you might find useful:


thanks -- that does look kind of like what I was thinking I'd need to do -- but in the long run what the gc to do it for me (which maybe it does in py3.4)

PyPy's GC design is (very) different, and allows finalisation of reference cycles involving __del__ even in Python 2. That path naturally comes with its own C extension compatibility challenges, though.
