Yeah, main.c does quite a lot... ;-)
This all spawned from a suggestion by Jim Fulton over on the
distutils-sig that it would be nice if there was a python module that
did all of the various types of launching found in main.c. His use case
is so that buildout scripts can easily use the same functionality that
the interpreter startup uses.
I didn't spot any, but does anyone know of code in that mix that
couldn't be moved to a pure python module like runpy?
If not, how would people feel about the various types of launching all
moving to runpy rather than just the -m stuff being there?
