It is a temporary trivial workaround waiting for a "solution" and I do
not really want anyone else to go down this road.

I am otherwise extremely unhappy with the move from a sane PYTHONPATH

This is yet another instance of parts of the Python dev community
understanding only one side of a COST equation and shoving their
(mis-)appreciation through everyone else.

May I suggest that we put this discussion to sleep until we:

* pass an official resolution of intent to break our layouts
* schedule an implementation.

which should happen at the next copil'.
