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.
