Embeded python without filesystem

Do you have some tips about making Python small (minimal list of
modules) and isolated from filesystem. I have an idea

#define Py_WITHOUT_FILES
This switch should disable some function/modules from modules sys,
fileobject, but also import from file, path resolving etd.

Maybe have a look at Pippy, which is python for the Palm.
As i understand it there is no file system on the Palm.

It would be good if you could try to develop such a patch, and would
volunteer to maintain it. If you do volunteer, there is a good chance
that it gets included with Python.
