#119 epydoc (without the ".py") needs sys.path hack

epydoc.py has this hack:

import sys, os.path
script_path = os.path.abspath(sys.path[0])
sys.path = [p for p in sys.path if
os.path.abspath(p) != script_path]

epydoc (without the ".py") doesn't have this. On my
Gentoo Linux system (Python 2.4.2), it fails for the
same reason as would epydoc.py without it. Adding
those three lines fixes it.

    Thanks for pointing this out. (The intention was that you
    would copy the 'epydoc' script to some other directory,
    but it really should work from the scripts/ directory
    too.) Fixed in subversion revision 1285.
