> 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.
