[mod_python] Any support for Class Destructors

If you define a __del__(self) method on your class, it will be 
called once the class instance's reference count drops to zero.
Just to be safe, tho, I wouldn't rely on this mechanism to release
important resources like db connections or file handles, but would
explicitly release them.
