Graham Wideman added the comment:

Additionally on the subject of venv docs:  I would encourage making it more clear regarding how activate changes the user's PATH. Both http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0405/  and http://docs.python.org/3.3/library/venv.html  talk about how activate adds the activated python binary to the path, but doesn't mention what path:  The one for the current console session? The system PATH environment variable (Windows) or one of the bash startup scripts (unix)? This is important, because it determines how far-reaching is activation of a particular virtual environment.
