I commited to patch and broke all buildbots \o/ There were errors in 
test_sysconfig and test_subprocess related to issues #7774 and #7880 (problems 
with sys.executable and modified sys.argv[0]).

I consider that it's a good point to detect the errors earlier, but it breaks 
code based on the errors :-) I will no backport the fix to 2.6 (or at least, 
not the fix about importing the site module)

Should I backport the fix to 3.1? (The backport to py3k is not done yet)
