how is this in python?

missing: folk tend to do something like:
export PYTHONPATH=~/mypackages
in their .bashrc or .profile

Actually, there is a standard mechanism in Python to support this; from the manual:

However, some programs or sites may find it convenient to allow users to have a standard customization file, which gets run when a program requests it. This module implements such a mechanism. A program that wishes to use the mechanism must execute the statement

import user

</x-tad-smaller><x-tad-smaller> </x-tad-smaller>
The user module looks for a file in the user's home directory and if it can be opened, executes it (using execfile() ) in its own (the module user's) global namespace. Errors during this phase are not caught; that's up to the program that imports the user module, if it wishes. The home directory is assumed to be named by the HOME environment variable; if this is not set, the current directory is used.
