Is there any easy way to emulate the nice behavior we get with Mac OS
X's ~/Library/Python/2.4/site-packages on other unix-like systems?

Is it possible to use the hacks Bob suggests here:

to just import site and addsitedir to add a similar directory under
the user's home directory?

After doing that, would it be as simple as pointing easy_install at
that directory?
