Only if you aren't careful (which pretty much holds true for any
Python extending or embedding cases :-)).  It seems to me that
extending while embedding is common situation whenever embedding is
involved, since at least in the cases I've done it, while I may be
embedding Python into a larger application, that application will
almost certainly want to offer services to the embedded Python script.
