Keep in mind that the leaks you may experience are directly related to 
what code you run, and whether or not they introduce cycles.   Some of 
the restricted python compiler code did/does create cycles under the 
assumption that the GC would break them.  But if you dont lean on code 
that uses RestrictedPython too much, you can live with slow leaks elsewhere.
