Since python is running in a child process, it only affects its own 
environment variables.  I'm not sure that a process can change its 
parents' environment variables in a platform independent way.


I also tried:
  $ python -c 'import os; os.system("export FOO=1")'
  $ echo $FOO

  $

but it doesn't seem to work.
