Could you elaborate on what this means?  I don't quite understand what you
mean by "include an isolated configuration".

I do think that Python should include a script to create the small amount of
set up needed to trigger a (built-in) virtual environment.  E.g. create the
bin and lib/... directories, populate bin, and drop a minimal pythonv.conf
