Having found this code on the net (by doing a Google search) I see
that it indeed does not satisfy the criteria I described. There is no
extension module here. It defines some functions which imbed the
interpreter and then executes them in main. 

Does the case I described even work? I am not interested in an
executable. Like I said, I have yet to see any examples out there.

Maybe I'm missing something. I don't see what, though.
