Har har :)
More thoughts on this:
We also *might* consider to introduce another derived
type which has this feature enabled.
For the moment, I don't propose that.
Is it possible to derive a type in Python with weakref
enabled? That would be a reason to disable it by default
and to give the user the option.

If it is doable from Python, then we don't need to
enforce it in the implementation. Well, I don't know.
