You could do this programmatically in sitecustomize.py:
- Put a module named sitecustomize.py in your Python/Lib directory
- Make whatever changes you want to sys.path in this module, e.g.
sys.path.append(<path to my directory>)
(Use os.walk() to traverse a directory tree)
- sitecustomize.py will be executed every time the interpreter starts
I'm not sure it's a good idea to append every subfolder of site-packages,
since some packages will have subpackages (in folders) that shouldn't
become top-level packages. You might want to have a single subfolder of
site-packages that you put your folders in. Then in sitecustomize.py you
would recursively traverse that folder.
