I'll leave the emacs discussion to you and Alex, and will only comment on the 
embedding issue.  I hope you guys can make progress on better integrating 
Alex's work into the mainline for emacs python support.

Re embedding: keep in mind that ipython also has an easy 'embeddable' mode:


While I've only used this from pure python code, I've had user reports of 
successfully calling it from embedded C code.  This might be useful to you (I 
can't say for sure without knowing the details of your setup and needs).  Let 
me know if you need any help with this.
