Sounds fine (I don't like "Apps" much, but hey :-)).

Well, they should probably go to Apps too, no?

I don't think separating bootstrap from shutdown is a good idea. They
are quite closely related since one undoes what the other did (and they
may also use shared private functions or data). I don't know what goes
in the remaining "pythonrun.c", could you detail a bit?
