I think that you are mistaken to the meaning of word "resources" in the 
above ...

Seriously ?    No, as the object is still being referenced by "foo2".    And 
I do not see you explain anything either. :-(

Also, what has that got to do anything with my example talking about the 
"__del__" method  I posted ?    As far as I can tell ?  Nothing.
