What's wrong with twiddling PYTHONPATH?

My instance home has a 'Packages' directory, where I have stuff like 
_ldapmodule.so (for ZLDAP), imaging.so, and the PIL and ldap packages. 
My start script looks like this:

----
#!/bin/sh

PYTHON_VER=2.1.3
ZOPE_VER=2.5.1

INSTANCE_HOME=/zope
PYTHONPATH=$INSTANCE_HOME/Packages
export INSTANCE_HOME PYTHONPATH

STUPID_LOG_FILE=$INSTANCE_HOME/var/log/zlog_`date +%Y%m%d`.log
STUPID_LOG_SEVERITY=-200
export STUPID_LOG_FILE STUPID_LOG_SEVERITY

echo `date` starting >> $INSTANCE_HOME/var/log/start_`date +%Y%m%d`.log
exec $INSTANCE_HOME/Python-$PYTHON_VER/bin/python2.1 \
         $INSTANCE_HOME/Zope-$ZOPE_VER/z2.py \
         -F $INSTANCE_HOME/var/FastCGI.soc -m 8099 -p - "$@" \
         >> $INSTANCE_HOME/var/log/start_`date +%Y%m%d`.log 2>&1
----

All in all, it works pretty well.  No need to sweat messing with 
PYTHONPATH. All instance homes should do this, and have a Packages 
directory :-)
