You can have a local sitecustomize.py in the current directory, which
wouldn't change the Python installation. Would that help?
As far as I can tell, the current directory isn't added to the sys.path
until after site.py executes, so I don't believe you can rely on .pth
files to do anything like what you want. Sitecustomize.py is it, with
appropriate smarts inside.
