Right.  That is the Debian thing.  All other distros do it the Python
recommended way.  Let us leave how Debian packages are installed by
Debian to the Debian people.  Give them options to do as they wish.
Which I suspect they would also prefer.

We need to focus our default on helping the user that downloads our
source tar ball to install the build exactly where Python upstream wants
us to:


And yes, at least on Gentoo, by design, that is looked in by default
by Python, which is the prupose of PYTHONPATH, which is now missing
in NTPsec.
