But then we do not need a search path definition in dtc itself; the one
in Python is enough.  Or am I missing something?

I think there are two possible situations:

  1. dtc provides Python bindings that are useful to Python
     programmers.  This is addressed by having both Python and dtc in
     the same profile, in which case PYTHONPATH is automatically
     defined.  Nothing special to do.

  2. dtc is itself written in Python and needs to access its own
     Python code.  In that case we should wrap the ‘dtc’ command such
     that PYTHONPATH contains the right thing.

Does that make sense?

Not necessarily, it probably doesn’t take up much space.

Oh, true, sorry!
