Maybe he's talking about PyPy's RPython, which is notoriously (and it
seems intentionally) underspecified? In that case, please contact the
PyPy team.

Or maybe there is something in Zope 2 called Restricted Python -- in
that case please contact the Zope lists.

There's nothing in the collective memory of python-dev called
Restricted Python that we can help you with.
