The patch adds a per user site-packages directory and a --user option
for distutils' install. It also cleans up a bit and
makes addsitepackages() extensible.

I'm going to write a mini PEP soonish.

The new patch adds the -s option, checks for getuid() == geteuid() and
adds sys.flags (see #1816).

nice.  ping a mac developer for what to do with the darwin stuff that
you commented out.

It'd also be nice to have unit tests for the new behavior.  Though i
don't think we have many (any?) of that type of regression test right
now.  Such a test would need to setup a test user site package,
os.system another instance python with and without -s to confirm if it
saw the test site package that was just created or not followed by
cleaning it all up.

Future patches will be applied to the branch directly:
