They generally add things to the search path.  I want to remove things.

I'm trying to avoid using the system or local libraries to make sure I'm 
testing the new libraries that I want to test.

Can I write a small wrapper that will patch sys.path and then call the code I 
want to run?
(I guess it would have to patch sys.args to get rid of itself.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
