We currently run the runtime embedding tests as a subsection of "test_capi".

I'm thinking it may make more sense to clearly separate them out as their own CPython-only test file, "test_runtime_embedding".

I'm also thinking we should add a new "Runtime embedding" entry to the experts index, with myself, Victor Stinner, Eric Snow, and Steve Dower as the initial members.

As noted in, it would also be good to ensure that the full traceback from a failed `_testembed` call is always visible when running in verbose mode.

What about a shorter name like test_embed?

I guess the shorted name would also better match the naming scheme used for the C API test module:

Modules/_testcapi.c -> Lib/test/
Progams/_testembed.c -> Lib/test/

> Modules/_testcapi.c -> Lib/test/
> Progams/_testembed.c -> Lib/test/

I like it :-)
