workingenv (http://svn.colorstudy.com/home/ianb/workingenv) doesn't use
.pth files, but does put in script-specific paths.
As I note in my previous email ("setuptools: hardcoding the path in a
script and site.py"), I think this would probably be cleanest to do
through a new installation option, that could also be placed into
distutils.cfg. Right now what workingenv does is very specific to
workingenv, and doesn't work off any public setuptools API.
