New submission from Neil Schemenauer <nas-python at arctrix.com>:
It would be handy to have a C API that registered an atexit function, similar to what calling atexit.register does. This API could be used by C extension modules to register atexit functions.
I think the implementation would be fairly simple. We need a function that calls atexit_register(). The tricky bit is that we need to make sure the atexit module has been initialized as atexit_register uses the module state.
This API is different from Py_AtExit in that atexit.register() calls the function early in the interpreter shutdown whereas Py_AtExit calls functions very late in the shutdown.
stage: needs patch
