What is the status of Brett's UNIX Python launcher "py" by the way?
You can see the current TODO list at https://crates.io/crates/python-launcher . Basically I need to implement "--help" and "--list" to fill in the last two low-hanging fruit features, but at long as you don't need to customize the search mechanism then it's already working. And BTW it's already compatible with either 3.10 or 4.0. :)
Looks like it's possible to either request a specific version (e.g. 3.6), or a major version (e.g. any Python 3). Is it possible to request "3.6 or greater (be it Python 3.10 or Python 4.0+)"?
That's not possible for the Windows launcher. As the idea is to have a uniform interface for the Windows and Unix launchers, I'd assume that this would need to be a feature request for both the Windows and Unix launchers. (It's a reasonable-seeming idea, but I don't know how useful it would be in practice - can you give some examples of use cases?)
