[pypy-dev] Potential PyPy incompatibility

Here's something I thought about that might be a compatibility problem, not
sure if it's a problem in production. When you take a method of a builtin in
Pypy, for example `str.join`, it seems to create a new object which is
weakreffable, where in CPython it's not. I was just looking at Django's
signal mechanism:


creates a weak reference to the signal-handler function, and if it dies, the
link is destroyed.

Do you think this might be a problem?
