+    # We keep references to all child items (once created). This is
+    # neccesary because NSOutlineView holds on to PythonItem instances
+    # without retaining them. If we don't make sure they don't get
+    # garbage collected, the app will crash. For the same reason this
+    # class _must_ derive from NSObject, since otherwise autoreleased
+    # proxies will be fed to NSOutlineView, which will go away too soon.
