Sure.  Note that for testing we could also reintroduce a trivial object
space -- ouch! wait! don't hit!  I think this would be far simpler than
the previous "trivial" space because it wouldn't try to be nice with the
PyPy interpreter at all; it would always use the underlying interpreter.
For the same reason I expect the CPyObjSpace to look like our initial
trivial object space as well, without growing all the complexities.
