[Distutils] easy_install and sys.path

Hi Folks

Can anyone point me to why easy_install forces modules to the front of 
sys.path? It seems to break long established rules about ordering
of path variables,  and certainly breaks python in some unexpected contexts
e.g: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-meta/+bug/113298

Thanks in advance,
