"I think that removing '' from sys.path, so that IDLE can run, is better than a nicer warning that it cannot run. This, of course, requires that sys not be shadowed, so that sys.path can be accessed."  So after importing sys, we should check sys.__file__, or do the manipulation in try: except: <post error message>.  This will be part of a much more careful startup sequence.
