Ah indeed, that code was moved.

Hmm, PYTHONPATH should come before the default search path. But it is
true that those eggs can do anything, like insert themselves at the
front of the path by putting python code in those .pth files (a gross
hack). So indeed, it sounds like a good idea to insert that path at
the front of sys.path.
