Consider the case where a thread that doesn't hold the GIL attempts to get a reference on `None`.

The problem with having a single immortal `None`, is that it will cause data cache thrashing as two different CPUs modify the refcount on the shared `None` object.
Each subinterpreter needs its own distinct `None`.

`None` could be made immortal, it just can't be shared between sub-interpreters.
