How are you using Python?

You can of course add directories to the PythonPath and to .PTH files in
your Python directory, also.   Additionally, you can append to sys.path at
runtime, for ultimate flexibility.

I don't really like the idea of cluttering up the site-packages directory
with all my own modules and scripts.   Tangling your stuff with the
distributed stuff makes for a mess, especially when it come time to
uninstall the old Python and install a new version of Python.
