Do this instead:
# Begin File

Screwing with purelib and platlib is a terrible idea if you ever have
multiple versions of Python installed, because they will all use the
same .pydistutils.cfg. The standard Python 2.3.0 already puts its
purelib and platlib there anyway (indirectly via symlink, but it still
goes there), so it's not ever going to actually do anything helpful.
