I'm with Terry on this, it needs a better rationale. Why can't you just
add a .pth file to the site-packages directory? It seems that would
address the issue nicely.
(See http://docs.python.org/lib/module-site.html for documentation of the
.pth mechanism, which would let you implement a separate vendor-packages
directory without modifying Python, and would still allow local overrides
of your vendor packages.)
