The documentation for Py_SetPath [1] states:

> The path components should be separated by semicolons.

I believe this should not say "semicolons", but "colons"; the default path as output by Py_GetPath is separated by colons.

A Windows path uses ":" after the drive letter, e.g. "C:\\Windows", so the delimiter is a semicolon on Windows. Other platforms use a colon.

CPython uses DELIM, which is defined in osdefs.h. This header isn't included by Python.h.
