For Linux and Mac OS X put the config file wherever the 'right' place is
then, but we are starting to create a lot of new directories disparate
from the actual install. Oh well.

On Windows we create: %APPDATA%/Python/PythonX.Y/site-packages

If it is to no longer live inside distutils (which seems reasonable)
then on Windoze a 'good' place would seem to be: %APPDATA%/Python/PythonX.Y/

On Windows there is no 'right' place, the officially right place for the
system is probably the registry but I don't think many Python
programmers would thank you for that...
