I've needed the same thing before but couldn't find it. AFAIK, the best 
you can do is register an exit function that will be called when python 
exits. Here is a sample code snippet:

//Called when python exits
void CleanupModule(void)
     //Perform cleanup here

Then in your init<module> function add the following code:

//Register function to be called when python exits
