Hey Alfredo,

We do not currently have any tools to do that, but it would definitely
be something interesting to discuss and maybe design on the list. I'm
sure there are static analysis tools for the C part and I'm sure we as
a community could come up with a "super tool" to check both the C and
Python parts of CPython.
