There hasn't been much said about which kind of objects would be immortal. Could this be a creation-time option? Or a type object (similar to a no-op tp_dealloc)?

If it's something that is known when the object is created, then some of the "infection" concern can be reduced - but if you wanted to arbitrarily make arbitrary objects immortal dynamically then it's a different matter.

Another benefit of knowing at creation time is that immortal objects could be allocated to a different page (or potentially even to read-only shared memory, if that was appropriate).
