[uWSGI] before_privileges_drop in python

I am looking at the recent check-ins related to hooks. These look really

My previous pull request contained a python hook for as_root which allowed
us to hook before dropping privs.

We are effectively looking to have something like the following in our
production.wsgi config

from uwsgidecorators import before_privilege_drop

def root_required_initialization():
    ... do stuff ...

Is the preferred method to do this as a C module and hook in via the
as_root hooks or to extend the python plugin to provide this new hook akin
to post_fork
