Scripts aren't always in sys.prefix, and some packages install fixed
data (e.g. web pages, message catalogs, etc.) to /usr/share or some such.
Also make sure you're not forgetting e.g. shared hosting scenarios
without a virtualenv, unless you're planning to make virtualenvs an
officially-supported thing. In such cases, the paths involved won't
necessarily fall into a single root.
Also don't forget sys.exec_prefix. (Isn't packaging fun?)
