This is happening on other platforms and with the current Pypy. I've isolated 
the problem to be creating the parsers in pyexpat. I've attached a script that 
exhibits the leak. I put a input() on the last line so that it was easier to 
check the memory usage. On 64-bit linux machine, CPython is uses 2.7MB while 
Pypy uses 417MB. Increasing the number of loops will cause the leak to grow so 
be careful.
