It seems to me that your patch doesn’t fix a bug but adds a feature. PEP 370 says that “distutils.command.install (setup.py install) gets a new argument --user to install packages in the user site directory”, not that the presence of the envvar should trigger the user install scheme.
Can you give a link to the original bug report?
