I should also note that there is work on this kind of isolation in a general way, in the form of people setting up full OS virtualization. This is kind of heavy handed, but then that's where the work is happening, to make this a reasonably efficient and manageable way to deploy things. It still can't be as granular as a per-script setup. But it provides many of the same advantages on a larger scale.
