Recently I asked about the inclusion of a "vendor-packages"
directory for Python on the Python mailing list.

See the thread started at:


for the full reasoning behind this request, and the replies
I received.

I then approached Guido for his take on this suggestion.
He recommended I submit the patch to the Python patch
manager at SourceForge, and inform the folks on python-dev
mailing list.

So I have.

You can find the patch submission at:
