While I do have some interest in this subject, I think at the point you are doing detailed code reviews of experimental software, it's probably no longer on-topic for this mailing list and possibly should be taken off-list until you have something concrete to report.
Also, if you want to explore this further:
(1) Hacking the byte-code is not portable. It won't work in non-CPython implementations, and bytecode is not a stable part of the CPython API either. Hacking the AST may be better.
(2) If you must hack the bytecode, there is at least one library for bytecode manipulations out in there, possibly on PyPI. Google for "python byte-code hacking" for more.
