A few more details:

I have embedded python in a similar manner to how a few groups mention 
to.  I don't use the InteractiveLoop in a separate thread for various 
reasons.  Instead, I compile a bunch of code, and send it off in groups 
of lines.  This works as far as I can tell.

I link in python statically, though most of the functionality (and many 
of the tools using it) are dynamically linked.  Qt is dynamically linked.
