I expect that for objects which are not commonly modified by two interpreters "at the same time", it should be fine.

But None, True, small integer singletons, latin-1 str single character singletons, etc. objects are likely to be frequently accessed and so can become a bottleneck.

Moreover, Python has an infamous feature: write (modify ob_refcnt) on "read-only" access :-D See "Copy-on-Read" feature popularized by Instagram ;-)
