How do I limit access to objects in Python?

I have an application that embeds the Python interpreter. My users have 
access to the interpreter through a console like window and they can run 
Python scripts. For my application I use some Python modules (say module 
Restricted) that I don't want to give my users access to. However, the 
modules that I make public to my users and that I want my users to be 
able to use themselves use the Restricted module. Any suggestions on how 
to solve this? I was thinking of instantiating a separate interpreter 
but I don't think this will solve my problem.
