getsizeof() is interesting only if it gives sensible results when used correctly, especially if you want to sum these values and get a global memory usage.

One usage is to traverse objects through gc.get_referents(); in this case the definition above is correct.

Now, are you suggesting to traverse objects differently? With dir(), or __dict__?

(btw, this discussion explains why pypy still does not implement getsizeof())
