I'll do this. However, to me setting sys.argv to ['-c'] is somewhat
pointless, considering that it doesn't prevent the rest of sys.argv
from being evaluated and executed in the first place.

In the spirit of "better ask for forgiveness than permission", I'm
changing it to leave sys.argv untouched (the only sane option IMO).
Novw in SVN. I'll revert the change if someone complains.

Thanks for working with me on this.
