You're suggesting that there's a good chance a DBDictClassifier instance
will be involved in a cycle?  Looking at the code briefly I didn't see an
instance attributes which looked like they would refer to other objects
which would (possibly indirectly) refer back to the instance.  It's a common
Python idiom to call an object's close() method in its __del__ method.
