I don't understand this comment, given that the PEP370 Implementation 
section 2nd paragraph quite specifically refers to the use of 
PYTHONPATH, I quote. "The user site directory is added before the system 
site directories but after Python's search paths and PYTHONPATH. This 
setup allows the user to install a different version of a package than 
the system administrator but it prevents the user from accidently 
overwriting a stdlib module. Stdlib modules can still be overwritten 
with PYTHONPATH."  What am I missing?
