I believe the TeX Kpathsea thing handles both of these simultaneously
via a distinction in the syntax used to specify the directories. A
directory which ends in a dirname is not recurseviely searched. One
that ends in /... is. So, for example:
setenv PYTHONPATH /from/here/down/...:/but/exactly/here
My knowledge of the details of kpathsea is kind of fuzzy. Maybe
someone out there knows exactly how it works...
