New submission from Joe Jevnik:

I am working on implementing nameduple in C; I am almost there; however, on the path of moving to full compatibility, I ran into a refcount issue somewhere. Hopefully someone can help me work this out.

To describe the issue, When I run the collections tests I most frequently segfault in a non namedtuple test; however, sometimes it runs (and passes) however that probably means I am using an unowned obect somewhere. I am new to the CPython API so I would love to go through this with someone to learn more about how it all works.

I am currently at PyCon and would absolutly love to speak to someone in person. I will be at CPython sprints for at least one day.
