For future safety, it might be an idea to make it:
PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:<colon-separated list of directories>
just in case you add any 3rd party modules later that add themselves
to your `global' PYTHONPATH. Of course, you could also reverse the
order, placing the global $PYTHONPATH at the end rather than the
beginning -- its a matter of taste I suppose.
Wondering of the vast emptyness of the 'net
in search of something cool.
