FWIW, I’m no longer strongly advocating using $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, since it seems to have little acceptance outside of graphical applications. Using it *or* ~/.python (or ~/.pythonx.y) would work for me.

Since this seems like a big change for no benefit in distutils, I’m reassigning to distutils2.

To push this issue forward, I am writing an email to python-dev today.

components: +Distutils2 -Distutils
versions: +Python 2.5, Python 2.6, Python 3.1
