Hi, Pushya,

sorry for taking so long to reply -- 

I'm averse to putting in any kind of file system magic like os.chdir(),
because it often has unintended side effects.  For example, some
directories in PYTHONPATH may be specified as a relative path, in which
case a chdir would break them.

Putting it in a wrapper class as you're doing is the right way to do
this, I think.
