I recommend bringing this new proposal up on python-dev or python-ideas, to get more eyeballs on the ideas before attempting implementation. One immediate worry I have is that if the reference counter is maintained in the shared memory segment, every process has to participate, and if a process crashes (segfaults) the shared refcount will be forever wrong and the segment will leak. Distributed GC is hard!
