As a user and embedder of IronPython, and a long-time user of cPython, I welcome this idea.

Maybe we can add a required variable "host" which contains a tuple (or set) of tagwords describing the hosting / embedding environment.

This could contain values like:
('apache', 'mod_python')
('apache', 'cgi')

This idea just popped up in my mind, so it is not yet fully matured. :-)
