"how to call the container for the libraries, the one thing providing the environment?"
In Visual Studio we call these Environments (in the source they're still referred to as Interpreters). A "virtual environment" is just a specific type of environment (one that inherits a stdlib and/or packages), as is an isolated environment (hosted in an app, or a conda env). They all specify a Python version and concrete versions of libraries - something directly executable, not something that needs to be actualised before use.
Not sure that we need an official term, but the venv docs likely have or need a definition to work with.

This blog post from Donald Stufft explains the difference between a Library and a Application.
The term "Library" is well known - ok
But how to call the container for the libraries, the one thing providing the environment?
Donald Stufft uses the term "Application"
I would like an official term defined by the python docs.
What do you think?
