not really -- that change just means that Python's object allocator will
return memory chunks to the C allocator if the chunks become empty, but
as the FAQ entry says, there are no guarantees that anything will be
returned at all. it all depends on your application's memory allocation
(did you read Evan's presentation material, btw?)
