Well, the jury is still deliberating on the specifics, however, as for myself, i would sway more to the /explicit/ side.
A few possibilities include:
* A configuration file. Python already checks the current
directory for ".pth" files, which it then reads and adds
the contained paths to sys.path -- most folks stopped
typing commands OVER and OVER on the commandline many
years ago. But to each his own.
* A runtime command or keyword placed in a script (YUCK!)
* A commandline switch (only good for members of the
python historical society.)
