[New-bugs-announce] [issue15011] Change Scripts to bin on Windows

New submission from Brian Curtin <brian at python.org>:

Attached is a patch, originally written by Van Lindberg*, which changes Python's layout on Windows to more match all of the other operating systems we support. This patch starts by changing the layout of virtual environments, so the venv module creates an environment with the same layout you'd find on Linux. The most visible change is the Scripts folder becoming bin, and there are changes to capitalization of folders to match that of Linux as well.

If this is acceptable I can do the Windows installer change to have the installed layout follow what's in this patch.

* Van asked me to take this on for him. I will make sure he has a contributor agreement on file.
