FYI, I have change the implementation to split the extra install schemes and extra schemes activated on site. This still makes sense over sitecustomize because we want the packages to be included in site.getsitepackages -- we want the vendor packages to essentially be the same as site-packages.

I have also moved sysconfig._get_preferred_schemes to the vendor config, instead of asking distributors to patch sysconfig -- this is why I prefer having it as executable code, we customize using functions, etc.

A config taking advantage of all these mechanisms should look like this:

    'vendor': {
        'stdlib': '{installed_base}/{platlibdir}/python{py_version_short}',
        'platstdlib': '{platbase}/{platlibdir}/python{py_version_short}',
        'purelib': '{base}/lib/python{py_version_short}/vendor-packages',
        'platlib': '{platbase}/{platlibdir}/python{py_version_short}/vendor-packages',
        'scripts': '{base}/bin',
        'data': '{base}',


def get_preferred_schemes(...):

Do you have any thoughts on this?
