Yup. There actually is a 'which.py' in Python's CVS
(dist/src/Tools/Scripts/which.py). I had started a thread on Python-Dev
way back to improve some of those scripts to the point where Python
users would reasonably want that directory on their path. 'which.py' was
going to be the first one I tried to update. I have just been lazy in
not submitting a patch to Python to see if my which would be acceptible.
