I agree completely. I think where we disagree is on whether mucking with
PYTHONPATH and using env is more complex or putting our generators in a single
directory is more complex. I think using env is extremely gross and complex, I
think mucking with PYTHONPATH is extremely gross and complex, and I think having
to reference a file from another directory is a *lot* less gross and *much* less
