Support for "site-python" directories in was deprecated in 3.4 and slated for removal in 3.5. Attached patch does the remove.

The patch has one problem with OS X framework builds.  This fixes it:

             self.assertEqual(len(dirs), 1)

Otherwise, LGTM

Thanks Ned, I'm hoping someone can give it a run under Windows too :)

Seems fine on Windows (especially since it doesn't look like site-python ever meant anything on Windows in the first place)!
