Fwiw, the behavior in PyPy is: don't do anything particular at shut-down, just shut down and quit the process.  No hacking at module globals to replace them with None, but also no guaranteeing that any __del__ method is ever called.  We didn't get a particular bug report about this so far, so it seems to work.

(This is just a report about PyPy's situation; I understand that the situation in CPython is a bit more delicate if CPython is embedded in a larger process.)
