For 3.3, I'd like to revive the tradition of listing planned large-scale changes in the PEP. Please let me know if you plan any such changes, at any time. (If they aren't codified in PEP form, we should think about whether they should be.)
Over in distutils-sig there's been extensive discussion at and since PyCon of a built-in Python virtual-environment tool, similar to virtualenv, targeted hopefully for 3.3. This is something that's seen some discussion on python-dev previously; I now have a working prototype and am working on a PEP. When the PEP is ready I'll bring it up for discussion on python-ideas and then python-dev; anyone interested in checking it out sooner can go read the discussions at distutils-sig.
