I meant I don't think we want that path upstream, and you should keep it as your own patch.

We don't have a "share" directory as part of CPython, but this would codify it. That would then conflict with your use of it in conda-forge.

It also makes sysconfig non-deterministic, which is going to be problematic against some other efforts around being able to treat it as static data to make native module compilation easier, as well as more generally something that often leads to security vulnerabilities and is best avoided.

So on balance, I think we will reject that patch.
