We should not provide such an "run arbitrary python code before execing the ultimate child" feature in the standard library.

It is complicated, and assumes you have an ability to execute a new interpreter with its own slow startup time as an intermediate in the child in the first place.  (embedded pythons do not have that ability)

Leave that to someone to implement on top of subprocess as a thing on PyPI.
