Definite +1 on distutils needing to be fixed in the upcoming maintenance releases for 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3.

-1 on doing the strict path security checks on a normal invocation, -0 on doing them when -S or -E have been passed in, +0 if it is *just* a warning to users that they're doing something risky, but proceeds with normal (backwards compatible) sys.path initialisation.

For 3.4, I plan to have a look at the organically-grown-over-time mess that is CPython's current interpreter initialisation system and see if I can figure out something a bit more sane and easier to configure/control (especially when embedding Python in a larger application) :P
