Let's just say that it's because of the interaction between VTK reference
counts and python reference counts, and because of all the nastiness
involved in making sure that object destruction is properly triggered.
If you're really interested, look at the code and either convince yourself
that it's right or convince yourself that it's wrong and find a better way
to do it.
