Another was of saying this is that the cache performs an important role
in maintaining object identity.  It's not possible to use a persistent
object without using a cached version of it.  If you think you need to
disable caching, you should probably say something more about what you
are trying to do.

The setattr hook in cPersistence.c is called when an attribute is
removed (del obj.attr).  An __del__() method would only be called if the
last reference to the object was also deleted.  And __del__ is to be
avoided whenever possible.
