Hi. Python scripts loaded by WeeChat need the ability to 'import' scripts
from non-global locations within their home directory, especially when the
imported scripts are not weechat scripts themselves (but rather libraries,
data structures, whatever...)

A good place would be:

So, the python interpreter might do one of:

(1) before running python, something that is effective to
# export PYTHONPATH=${HOME}/.weechat/python:${PYTHONPATH}

(2) evaluate this code before load of each script:
import sys, os
sys.path.insert(0, os.environ['HOME'] + '/.weechat/python')

(3) provide an API function that effectively does (2) for the script,
whenever such behavior applies for that language.
