Hi Andy,

so you could change the store location, but it would just create the same stone 
structure as /gnu/store elsewhere, with the same issues and no substitutes.

Instead you could try to create a relocatable pack of python, and untar it 
somewhere writable. There might be a small runtime penalty, but we're talking 
about python anyway :)
