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.
