Adding __del__ methods causes the object to become uncollectable if it
forms part of a reference cycle. Thus it is almost always a bad idea
to add __del__ methods when attempting to debug a space leak, as the
most likely outcome is that you introduce a _new_, _different_ leak to
the one you are trying to debug.
