I like ~/.python very much too (that was my initial proposal IIRC). 

I guess the best way to add this support is to provide a new api in, that returns this folder.

Distutils can move pypirc and distutils.cfg file there.

Now for the global distutils.cfg, if we want to have it somewhere else
that the distutils package directory itself, we would need a
"/etc/python" scheme for instance, that could be also added in

I don't know though how the latter would look under windows
