Summary: 3.29 site is confusing re site-packages on Windows

Initial Comment:
Library Reference 3.29 site seems to say that
site-packages is only searched on Unix and Mac. The
relevant sentence is in the third paragraph: "For the
tail part, it uses the empty string (on Windows) or it
uses first lib/python2.4/site-packages and then
lib/site-python (on Unixand Macintosh)."

A clearer and more accurate wording would be "For the
tail part, it uses the empty string and lib/site-python
(on Windows) or it uses first
lib/python2.4/site-packages and then lib/site-python
(on Unixand Macintosh)."

The relevant code is line 187 in site.py.
