I only saw yuriy_levchenko's request in 2016, it doesn't sound like a popular request. Disabling completely the GC is an invasive change, the GC is part of the Python semantics. I agree with Irit, this idea should be discussed on python-ideas first. I close this issue.

Note: I moved the PyGC_Head structure to the internal C API in Python 3.9, see bpo-40241.
