My pysandbox project uses various hacks to secure Python. The attacker
doesn't care of writing pythonic code, (s)he just want to break the
sandbox :-) See my pysandbox project for more information:

See sandbox/test/ if you like weird code :-) Tests ensure that the
sandbox is safe.

Constant types would also help optimization, especially PyPy JIT.
