Hello, I'm just a app developer which is embedding the python32.dll
and I assumed (and wished) python would simply copy my allocated parameter-string into the type object (( spec->name) is copied too). I looked in the source and see this ownership confirmed:

static void 
type_dealloc(PyTypeObject *type)
.... PyObject_Free((char *)type->tp_doc);

The typeobject owns tp_doc and even requires a special allocation (pyobject_malloc), which is no problem if the type creates its own copy; the hosting app is not connected.
