I don't think -E is a security feature. Even if the stdlib was fixed, there's
tons of 3rdparty Python code that consumes os.environ.
It seems like if you really cared about not letting the environment influence a
Python application, you'd just wrap python in a script that cleans out the
environment before execing.
