Exec acting like execfile

exec is a keyword that just expects a string, while execfile() is a
function that accepts a filename and dicts of global and local vars.
So execfile() seems more powerful. But slower because you're reading
in a file.
Is there any way to use exec with execfile's power? I found that
Python has an undocumented exec() function, but Jython doesn't. And I
need Jython. How do others work around this?
Thanks in advance.
