[Bf-committers] [Bf-blender-cvs] SVN commit: /data/svn/bf-blender [19999] trunk/blender/source: BGE Python sys.path for the blenderplayer and blender

Basically the difference is in 2.48a you could not be sure your
blendfiles directory would be in the sys.path, now this is always the
case for the player and blender, including linked libraries.

in 2.48a the blenderplayer path was not initialized for any system,
youd just get the same sys.path as running python from the command

By initializing sys.argv now we always get blenders binary path
included. With my recent commit, all the blendfiles will have their
paths added to the sys.path too.

In blender (not the player) the sys.path is already setup to include
blenders scripts dir's so maybe this is what you mean.
packages work normally of course in all cases however the option to
run a package directly isnt working yet like it is for modules with
the python controller.
