typeobject.c:
TPSLOT("__del__", tp_del, slot_tp_del, NULL, ""),

I'm not super-familiar with how typeobjects and slots work, but I imagine that if a type is defined with a __del__ member, then the tp_del slot is automatically filled out.  The converse need not be true.

At any rate, the non-zero-ness of tp_del is what gcmodule.c uses to find out if an object has a finaliser.  There is a code rudiment present in gcmodule.c, that hints at an earlier time when '__del__' was looked up but that string is not actually used.  That can be removed to, eiter as part of this patch or separately since it should be quite uncontroversial.
