This is great... And how do I know that I need to use gc.get_referents()
to get those objects in case I'm measuring the memory consumption of a
teeobject (rather than, say, trusting __dict__, or simply trusting the
getsizeof() output at face value)?

If sys.getsizeof() is only useful for people who know *already* how an
object is implemented internally, then it's actually useless, because
those people can just as well do the calculation themselves.
