This was true until CPython 2.4: the 2.5 version does actually release
unused memory to the operating system.

Restricting yourself to the intersection of the two versions [Python 2.6
and 3.0] is very painful and limited. We're not introducing backwards
compatibility syntax in 3.0, because that would defeat the purpose
(we've had backwards compatibility forever in 2.x, and the whole point
of 3.0 is to clean up the mess). -- Guido van Rossum, July 2007
