The function addusersitepackages() seems to be un(der)documented; looking at
the source it turns out that the expected argument is a sequence of known
paths rather than a directory you want to add.
If you need to add a directory that is not deteced by getusersitepackages()
you can do so with addsitedir(my_directory) or by modifying sys.path
directly with sys.path.append(my_directory).
I recommend that you install the required packages as root rather than trick
root into executing user-modifiable code, or, even better, that you run the
cron job as user "erik".
