Thank you! It looks like with that added DECREF, the reference count
leak is gone. While it was a minor issue (it should be noted that
reference counting errors on the built-in data-types won't cause
issues), it is nice to clean these things up when we can.
I agree that the arrtype_new function is hairy, and I apologize for
that. The scalartypes.inc.src was written very quickly. I added a
few more comments in the change to the function (and removed a
hard-coded hackish multiply with one that takes into account the actual
size of Py_UNICODE).
