   I messed this in the sense that I have ran .split('.pythonrc.py'), got
('', '.pythonrc.py') and thought there is a problem. .split() works fine.
Even .splitext() works fine with multiple dots:

>>> os.path.splitext("/bin/.pythonrc.py")
('/bin/.pythonrc', '.py')


>>> os.path.splitext(".pythonrc")
('', '.pythonrc')

   and I think it should be

('.pythonrc', '')

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
