Perhaps the simplest thing would be to stop doing anything special when a module is garbage collected: the garbage collector can take care of any orphaned ref-cycles involving the module dict.  Then at shutdown the remaining modules in sys.modules could have their dicts "purged" in the old way.

This would be orthogonal to issue812369.  In fact Armin's original post says that this is a change worth investigating, though his patch does not do it.
