Just to be clear: you don't want this to happen all the time,
you want it to happen only with a particular script, yet you
don't want to modify that script at all?

Would it be sufficient to have a local sitecustomize.py file
in the directory where the script is, or do you have other
scripts in that folder which you don't want to get the same

What about a wrapper which you invoke instead of the script,
which sets this up and then runs the real script using
"import" and an appropriate direct call?
