I believe I documented it many moons ago.  I don't think CurrentVersion was
ever implemented (or possibly was for a very short time before being
removed).  The "registered modules" concept was misguided and AFAIK is not
used by anyone - IMO it should be deprecated (if not just removed!).
Further, I believe the documentation in the file for PYTHONPATH is, as said
in those docs, out of date, but that the comments in getpathp.c are correct.
