Steve Dower added the comment:

You can also modify the "python36._pth" file in the embedded distro to include 
"import site" if you want all the stuff that comes with that.

The intent of the embeddable distribution is to be a private dependency of a 
larger application, where you typically won't want the site module. 

It is also intended to be a developer resource that is extracted by the dev, 
modified, and then put into another installer - it's not meant to be 
automatically extracted and used on a target machine. Modifying the ._pth file 
is therefore "acceptable" given the purpose.

I've closed this as an issue. Hopefully I can convince the Nano Server guys to 
blog again (they did once before at
