I would argue this sounds like a case for a "python_runner", i.e. a lightweight python vm that can run python apps, e.g. zipapps. Something like the blender_runner for blender. Making it explicitly an app that runs via some other engine.
How would that differ substantially from a normal Python installation?
The "runner" idea makes sense when a development environment is substantially larger than its runtime component. But that's not the case with Python -- it's already almost all "runner".
