Eric Snow added the comment:

PEP 432 is all about the PyRun_* API and especially relates to refactoring it 
with the goal of improving extensibility and maintainability.  I'm sure Nick 
could expound, but the PEP is a response to the cruft that has accumulated over 
the years in Python/pythonrun.c.  The result of that organic growth makes it 
harder than necessary to do things like adding new commandline options.  While 
I haven't looked closely at the new function you added, I expect PEP 432 would 
have simplified things or even removed the need for a new function.
