AFAIK, this is what SIP does, since Qt also manages the lifetime itself.
However, that means that you have to check in every operation whether the
underlying C++ object has been deleted (and throw a corresponding Python
exception). Alternatively, you risk crashes and call that usage errors.
(Depending on the actual object lifetimes, this may be practically feasible.)
