I posted some of this earlier in the week, but for some reason the bug tracker marked my message as spam.  Hopefully this message will survive. ;-)

Can you compare and contrast your approach with calling PyObject_GC_UnTrack and PyObject_GC_Track to mark the object as uncollectable/collectable?

I can't speak for anyone else, but speaking as someone who has ungracefully poked into the innards of garbage collector in extension modules, I'm interested in seeing your patches.
