As discussed at the
patch adds several PyName_ClearFreelist() functions and extends
sys._compact_freelists() to clear all free lists.

Is patch this still relevant? 

The functionality seems to be present in the trunk and py3k.

Indeed, r60797 and r64753 removed sys._compact_freelists, in favor of an 
automatic call to all PyXxx_ClearFreelist() during the collection of the 
highest generation.
