Regarding this section, http://docs.python.org/extending/embedding.html#very-high-level-embedding, according to http://docs.python.org/c-api/init.html Py_SetProgramName() should be called before Py_Initialize() (see the comment for Py_SetProgramName()). This matters for the particular case of Mac OS X (see http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pythonmac-sig/2012-October/023746.html).

I recommend adding a Py_SetProgramName() to the example.
