There is no function named "visit", and the semantics of tp_traverse are
etched in stone because extension modules we don't control already implement
its long-advertised interface.  No offense intended, but if you want to help
with this you should really learn what the Python implementation does first;
random ideas (which may or may not apply in some other implementation) are a
distraction on Python-Dev (this list pretends <0.9 wink> to be more focused
than c.l.py).
