Yes, Alex, but this method won't work if my program is killed by an
exception or by signal. The method that I use cleans things up on exception.

If I register a cleanup function in atexit while debugging, when most of
time my program terminates with an exception, my memory will leak
tremendously.

Possibly, there should be a PEP for that...
