> The attached patch removes support for executing code in .pth files

This change will basically break all Python applications. Don't do that.

If you believe that we can smoothly move to a world without .pth files, you should propose an overall plan, step by step. It implies to add an option to Python to disable .pth files. It might be enabled by the -I command line option.
