We had talked about this before.
There is no plan. Unfortunately, Python does some memory allocation tricks
that valgrind reports as errors. When I want to check Python bindings
memory errors, I used a debug python build (configure python with
./configure --with-pydebug --without-pymalloc), and then valgrind works.
But with a standard Python binary valgrind will always detect phony errors
and we don't want that.
I have no idea how to fix this, so we might as well just leave it alone.
