I don't think that you will like it, but I feel that a PEP will be needed
here to list use cases and explain what replace .pth files for each use
case. Maybe no replacement for some use cases is fine. The PEP doesn't have
to be long.

I also expect that it's going to be a large backward incompatible change. A
PEP can summerize the rationale, schedule deprecation, etc.

Any volunteer around? Barry, Nick, someone else?
