Hi Christian,


I have a suggestion though, that completes Nick's answer.

distutils/command/install.py already contains install schemes and
imports USER_SITE and USER_BASE to builds user-specific install
schemes. I think it wouldn't hurt for clarity to reunite all these
schemes in a single place in the stdlib (so in sys maybe?)
