I'm reading through plperl and plpython implementations and I don't understand the way they work.

Comments for plperl say that there are two interpreters (trusted and untrusted) for each user session, and they are stored in a hash.

Plpython version looks quite different, there is no such global hash with interpreters, there is just a pointer to an interpreter and one global function _PG_init, which runs once (but per session, user, or what?).

I'm just wondering how a plpython implementation should look like. We need another interpreter, but PG_init function is run once, should it then create two interpreters on init, or should we let this function do nothing and create a proper interpreter in the first call of plpython(u) function for current session?

python does not any any sort of reliable sandbox, so there is no plpython, only plpythonu - hence only one interpreter per backend is needed.
