Securing a custom build of the CPython interpreter would probably be 
significantly easier than designing a 'secure mode' that ran on top of the 
standard version. The former might even be a stepping stone towards the latter.

Still not easy though (the main task would be to prevent Python code from 
accessing the OS, while still allowing module imports to work).
