a tuple, and if it needs more space, it doubles the size one or
more times, and ends by calling Resize again to set the final


btw, the start of Resize looks a bit strange: should that
DECREF really be there?  should least be an XDECREF, or
am I missing something?

 if (v == NULL || !PyTuple_Check(v) || v->ob_refcnt != 1) {
  *pv = 0;
  Py_DECREF(v); /* really? what if v is NULL? */
