I don’t mind if the /System python looks in /Library for stuff that the user 
installed there, but I do consider it a bug that Apple installs system files in 
/Library because that affects all installations of Python 2.7.

That’s what we get for playing nice with OSX conventions for where to locate 
files :-(. Luckily this isn’t a problem for Python3 as Apple doesn’t ship that 
(and I’d be surprised if they ever unless they start shipping Python3 code as 
part of the OS).
