Typically this is what Python does. On the RTEMS port a user creates a 
single C file that references the required modules and they get linked 
in. No code loading was needed.

You cannot use Python's build system. It is broken from cross-compiling. 
Once built I found Python embedded well. Its libraries allowed me to 
create powerful applications.

Nice. The more choice the better for RTEMS users.
