OK, I have a patch against the standalone pylauncher repo at
https://bitbucket.org/pmoore/pylauncher. I'm not sure what the best
approach is - I didn't want to patch the python core version directly (a)
because I wouldn't be able to test it easily, and (b) because I'd want a
standalone version anyway until 3.4 comes out.

BTW, the tests for pylauncher fail for me on the unpatched version, so all
I can say is that the patched version fails the same way and my manual
tests worked as expected...

I can rework it against cpython if needed.
