Cython is out of question since link time dependencies has to be kept at
an utmost minimum. An concerning doing things from python code it's
simply not possible (or I don't know how this should work). Python is
fully embedded including any file actions (virtual file system). The
launch comes from C++ land. No interpreter is involved. The main work is
done outside Python and only dropped in python to do higher logic. This
also means the very first python code run requires a C++ script file
loading before this first code can ever run. I can't run code that
doesn't yet exist in the reach of the python VM. That's the main
problem. This is why I need to figure out how to push that first code
into Python in a way I can construct an object (from a predefined
class). From there on all calls into Python land are solely done trough
function calls on this one object obtained in the beginning. I see no
other way to handle the problem.
