The most relevant functions in there are "RunMainFromImporter()"
(attempting zipfile/directory execution) and "RunModule()" (-m switch
and also called for zipfile/directory execution). The latter function
just uses normal C API calls to actually invoke the runpy code
(specifically "runpy._run_module_as_main()").
