Support for executing Python code in rootwrap

Registered by Thierry Carrez on 2012-06-19

Support for executing Python code instead of just shell commands
This will increase performance and security for sequences of simple shell commands.

It will also prevent us from having to build more precise filters for dangerous commands (dd, chmod, chown...). The downside is that it might mean abandoning the possibility to use pure "sudo" as a root_wrapper.
