I'm looking through the code of CPython and I don't see `dist-packages` anywhere. Is this some local distro patching or something?
What I'm really wondering is whether we need to split `.so` and `.py` modules. Technically distutils does that but it seems to use the same path for both on all platforms I see in `INSTALL_SCHEMES`.
