In fact, this is a backward compatibility issue.  Users expect that if you install it in the old location, it behaves like it did in the old location (lower security), and this is probably depended on by a number of users of python.  We *could* change it in some new feature release I suppose, but I'm pretty sure we consciously decided to go with this approach for this reason.

I do wonder what the standard practice is in the Windows world for alternate install locations, because that might have been a factor too :)
