Komodo runs code in a separate process and I'm pretty sure that your
Python-in-Python wouldn't convince us to do otherwise because it would
be difficult for you to *exactly* emulate every single behavior of the
real Python interpreter especially when you consider that we an
currently allow people to debug code on any Python interpreter including
everything from 1.5.2 to experimental 2.2s.
