I looked for "Python COUNT_ALLOCS" on the Internet. This special build seems to be very badly documented on the Internet. Outside Python own documentation, I found almost zero reference to it. IMHO it's basically unused.


(*) bpo-33058: Two years ago (2018), attempt to make COUNT_ALLOCS build ABI compatible with release build. Extract:

> > Could tracemalloc help you?
> tracemalloc can't distinguish between the usage of gc allocs, normal mallocs, and free list reuse.
