It's not going to do that, but as of 0.6a6 eggs are placed before the
directory that *contains* them on sys.path. So, if you require an egg
that's in site-packages, it will be added just before site-packages in
sys.path, thus preventing unmanaged packages from interfering.

That's the case now; it's just that you can always get a
DistributionNotFound (if it's not available) or a VersionConflict (if
another version has already been activated).
