The use that first springs to my mind is debugging import paths etc.
If you have multiple pythons installed and aren't sure that they're
finding the right modules, you could fire up PyWhich on an innocuous
module like math or sys, and see if it's loading it from the right
path. People doing this might not necessarily be programmers, they
might be sysadmins; but you're right that it's most likely this will
be used by competent Python programmers.
