You don't want to get rid of 'interning' (e.g. PyString_Intern*())
but just the intern() built-in? We actually use both, but we use the
C API call much more frequently than the built-in call. I don't
think it would be too painful for us if intern() was removed, but
OTOH if it was stuck in some Python internals module (sys?) and not
kept as a built-in, that would be fine too.
