I don't get how this is supposed to work. I'm running it as fully
embedded Python. There is no main script. The builtin modules are added
as C++ bound classes and a user made main script is loaded but not run
directly (I'm hooking into a create object). For this purpose I load the
script module using C++ code using PyImport_ImportModule(moduleName). At
this time the module loading code has to kick in already (I've added
this one by C++ too before). The problem is now that in this call I end
up in my C++ loader version where there is no Python script involved. I
came to the conclusion that I can solve this only by having the C++ end
properly load the module. I could add Python code with
PyRun_SimpleString but then I'm down to the same problem as before: how
to evaluate code so it is attached to a module or type-class? As I
understand it the problem is the same as before just pushed around a bit.

Sounds good. I'll give it a try
