Yes. I've just released EasyExtend that does this kind of job:

http://www.fiber-space.de/EasyExtend/doc/EE.html

It fits quite nice with Python and is conceptually simple, safe and
reasonably fast. Using EasyExtend PyCells could be made an own language
( including Python ) defined in a Python package ( i.e. no C-code and
complex build process is required ).  I would be interested in user
experience. I wouldn't consider EE as "experimental" i.e. open for
severe changes. It still lacks some comfort but it also improves
gradually in this respect.
