> This brings to mind the transition of many programs from using a single config file or startup script to using a directory of config/startup files parsed/executed in alphabetical order. Would a sitecustomize.d/ directory (with files within it executed in alphabetical order) as a replacement for executable code in .pth files be an improvement on the status quo?

No, because the required execution order is governed by package 
interdependencies rather than names. SysVInit went around this by 
hand-picking number prefixes to files in rcN.d/ but this proved 
unmaintainable in the long run.
