The adding of paths to sys.path is not a distutils problem.
The support for installing into separate application areas *is* a distutils
problem. At a minimum, we need to be able to get the windows installer
to prompt for a location. There are probably implications for other
platforms, like making rpms relocatable. I would like distutils to support
an application-installation model, in addition to a library installation model.
