Getting Python on Windows points USER_HOME

Having installed the latest Cygwin-built Python distro (3.8.1), it thinks user-site is C:\Users\<myName>\AppData\Roaming ...

For all the usual reasons (and I'm confident like many of y'all) I strongly prefer having user-site = ~, i.e. *nix-style.

I've munged Lib/ and to set base = "~" when == "nt", but this doesn't do the trick.  What am I missing?
