Regarding other uses of .pth files, the project [future-fstrings](https://github.com/asottile/future-fstrings) relies on .pth files to enable its at-startup behavior.

I'm also +1 to remove .pth files, but I also believe it's not viable today due to development installs of pkg_resource-style namespace packages.

I haven't read the full history of this issue, but plan to get caught up on it soon.
