CPython's startup sequence and collection of global flags are organically
evolved madness, so I think adding even more complexity to them is a bad
idea. When you're in a hole, the first thing to do is *stop digging*.

I could use help laying the foundations for PEP 432 though - getting the
separate Programs directory split out, breaking up the monstrosity that is
pythonrun.c, etc. Implementing that basic refactoring in default will make
it more feasible to keep the PEP branch up to date without major conflicts.
