I don't want to use the execution features of .pth files, just their original functionality of adding extra directories to sys.path. I'd be very happy to see the arbitrary code execution 'feature' of .pth files go away.

Windows supports symlinks, but the last I heard was that creating them requires some obscure permission bit. It seems to be awkward enough that Windows users aren't happy with the "just use symlinks" approach, which was what I was originally trying.
