From Doc/c-api/gcsupport.rst:

> Constructors for container types must conform to two rules:
> #. The memory for the object must be allocated using :c:func:`PyObject_GC_New`
>    or :c:func:`PyObject_GC_NewVar`.
> #. Once all the fields which may contain references to other containers are
>    initialized, it must call :c:func:`PyObject_GC_Track`.

_pickle.Pickler and _pickle.Unpickler have the Py_TPFLAGS_HAVE_GC flag, implement tp_traverse and tp_clear, but PyObject_GC_Track is newer called.
