Not going to happen, sorry.

Agreed, as I mentioned in a previous message.  I'll also note that
step 2) is completely unnecessary in most cases (in fact, I have never
set PYTHONPATH on Windows, except where venv did it for me), and in
fact is likely to break things if you have more than one version of
Python installed.  Only set PYTHONPATH once you've determined that
it's actually necessary.
