[vtkusers] Destroying objects from Python

I've got a VTK/Python question.

With python, when/how are VTK objects destroyed?

Normal python objects are destroyed when their reference counts are
decreased to zero, but this cannot be true of VTK objects: if I create a
set of VTK objects locally in a function, these objects persist outside
of this function, even though their references have been lost.

How do I force an object to be destroyed?
