    I am using Win7 on a tightly locked down desktop.

    Is there an alternative to using PythonPath?

    What are the trade-offs?

  2. What do you mean by "using PythonPath"?
    What doesn't work that you want to have an alternative for?

  4. Usually there is no need to define the PYTHONPATH variable; I never use it.
    There is a per-user site-packages directory (2.6 and up), on Windows it is
    located at %APPDATA%\Python\PythonXX\site-packages. Every user gets its
    own %APPDATA% directory, with read and write permissions.
