This package is responsible for establishing the Python execution environment for Western X. The major tasks it performs are:
- setting up uniform logging via Python's standard loggers;
- adding "super" site-packages (much like Python's standard site-packages) described by environment variables;
- supporting our multi-platform build environment via *.pth files;
os.environafter it is mangled by programs which embed Python (e.g. Maya and Nuke);
- monkey-patching some Python bugs in older versions that are in use at Western X.
Read the docs, and good luck!
