No, I did not mean using msize() or something like. Since memory is managed outside of Python, we have no a list of allocated blocks.

I meant that we can get the total memory used by the Python process (using OS-specific methods) and compare it between iterations. If it continues to grow, there is a leak. It perhaps is not able to detect small leaks (less than the page size), but large leaks are more important.
