debauch is showing promise athough it is still pretty rough
around the edges.  memprof is another option.  It looks like
init_exceptions may be leaking memory.  Some debauch output:

 1      Leaked Memory 0x0849cf98, size 44 (from 0x0) AllocTime: 79269 FreeTime: 43436      
        return stack:
                ???:?? (0x40016005) 
                classobject.c:84 (0x805c16d) <PyClass_New+631>
                exceptions.c:337 (0x8088594) <make_Exception+250>

                loop.c:23 (0x8053305) <main+101>

I haven't figured out if this is a real leak yet.
