Hmmm? That doesn't seem quite right to me. That's just a knee-jerk
reaction, I don't have any real evidence.
As a side note, I'm not sure whether some mention should be made that
TRACK_OBJECT specifically does not work any differently from current
Python when it comes to threads. That is, if it's a shared variable of
any sort, you need a mutex if you're going to perform multiple
operations on it.
