For cases like the email package or distutils, I think it's perfectly OK to only provide the updates for older Python releases as separate download. Both have their own way of life, so IMHO this is acceptable.
In neither case, this is really possible: Once you have the package in the Python core, a separate installation in site-packages cannot override the core implementation.
This might sound clueless, but wouldn't it be a good idea to change that? So that site-packages comes before Lib/ in sys.path?
