Rather than (or in addition to) being a standalone script, python-config should be invokable as a stdlib module, e.g. "python -m sysconfig.config".  This would prevent the risk of invoking the wrong script on PATH.

what are the situations where the path for python and python-config is different?

This proposal doesn't say anything how to retrieve the correct information for cross builds using this module.  From my point of view, python-config should stay outside the standard library.

En, looks like just only makefile would call python-config.py.
IMHO, if no out user call this script, looks it move to stdlib would be better.
