It seems to me that the more appropriate change here would be to redefine PyState_FindModule as return a *new* ref rather than a borrowed ref and have it do the Py_INCREF before returning.

Code using it would then need to add an appropriate Py_DECREF. A reference leak is generally a less dangerous bug than an early free.
