Does anyone know where Node._make_parent_nodes came from?  It doesn't
appear to be set anywhere except at class initialization time.

It controls the setting of the parentNode reference, so I presume it
originated before the cycle detector was added to Python.  Is there
still a need for it?  Can it be removed, and the behavior made the
same as when it's true (the default)?
