I am actually planning on re-writing the module in pure "C", which will
make it 100% pure CPython extension. Also, I will write the same module
for JPython. One might ask "what is wrong with Java's weak references?"
The answer is simple - nothing! The module will simply provide the
compatibility with its CPython's counterpart.
