Nonetheless, it's still something that we could support better. If telling someone to set PYTHONSTARTUP is too hard, then we can design another way that can work well without relying on a barely documented (mis)feature.

As one idea, we could add a way to register new -X options that would translate into an import/function call after doing site, which then means you could do "python -X coverage ..." and if you don't then you don't get code injected at all, regardless of bugs in any libraries you've installed.
