Start a python interactive shell from python.

This may sound strange but I need to start a python shell from python.
The motivation is that I have a bunch of (numeric) python functions to
provide to a user. The best way I can think of is packing my python
module using py2exe, and because it is easiest to let him run the
functions through python syntax, I would like to start a python shell
after the module is loaded.
if __name__ == '__namin__':
' myfunc has been defined '
START A PYTHON SHELL?
so the user can type myfunc(0.5) and others. I can of course use
raw_input and eval but I will lose the convenience of a real shell.
Many thanks in advance.
