The ._pth file is certainly not meant to cover beginner scenarios. But with that list of paths you should get almost exactly the same sys.path by default.

Modifying a module's __path__ will only affect that module (and imports via that module), whereas sys.path affects your entire program. Adding an empty string to either should give you the default behavior back, but this is specifically not supported by ._pth.
