thanks a lot investigating this.

Think will drop the whole thing --trying to guess the path from file 
loading-- is error prone anyway.

If Emacs encounters

  (file-name-directory (locate-library "python-mode"))

before python-mode is loaded, an error will result.

OTOH if python-mode is already present, it must not be the one we need 
for subdirectories. Does not make sense to store the path from here.

Will update the INSTALL instead requiring settings before.

BTW as completion from Pymacs isn't used for the moment, think it's a 
truly stand-alone still.
