Yea, but the C++ equivalent also doesn't do GC, I was reling on the Python
GC to do my memory management for me.  Bad/Lazy programming style.  I'll
look into the dictionary concept.  I just need to determine when to clear
the dictionary, because the Indices created were thrown away.  I assume it
would be whenever a layoutChanged() signal is emitted?
