For a second I was afraid this comes in the category
"you can't have your cake and eat it".

But you have control over the locals/globals so you could easily
pass something using PyInterpreter.set(), or just do it directly:

theLatestCopyOfYourGlobals['varName'] = valueYouWantToPass

before doing the exec. Using varName in your function should do the trick then.

Have fun,
