I agree wholeheartedly, an explantation of sys.path initialisation would be very helpful. I've seen too many hacks in end user Python code due to misunderstandings around sys.path initialisation and the available ways to customise sys.path. I'll work on this, try to write an easy to follow explanantion and see where the other documentation needs to be amended to point to a new section.
