Attached patch implements the idea proposed on the python-ideas mailing list:
https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2016-March/039314.html

The patch is a proof-of-concept. The code still contains FIXME.

Why does this patch execv() the interpreter to set options? I'd expect it to be possible to get the same result by updating the argument parsing code in Py_Main.

It's to set PYTHONMALLOC env var which must be set before Py_Main() is called.

Since I got negative feedback on python-ideas, I close this issue and will investigate the documentation option.
