Not quite, my hope is to have a python tarball similar to the "Windows x86 embeddable zip file" but for linux. 
Similar to miniconda but for plain python, or sort of python "sdk", if that makes sense.


PS. I didn't know about the core workflow, thanks

is there any interest (or anyone has done it before), building the python interpreter using docker?

The basic idea is building the toolchain (gcc) and on top of that the python interpreter. On mac/linux it can build natively, but it can use docker to target linux from mac/windows.
