The issue is whether the C API is exposed in the same way. The answer is
probably *yes* - as it is just a port of the main python distribution.

(I have no experience of this - so this is all conjecture of course).

I think your main problem will be resource consumption on the limited 
If you cut down the python interpreter to only include the bare 
essentials (get
rid of some of the embedded modules etc) then it would be more viable. 
That may
entail more work in the Python source code than you are up for though.
