Sorry Anto, but I really don't see it as a good idea to include virtualenv in
pypy. It just increases overall confusion and will suddenly break if people do
"virtualenv -p pypy" whereas "pypy path-to-virtualenv" works.  It's much cleaner
to release a "virtualenv_p" or so which anyone can install and which is
distinguishable.  If you insist on shipping it with pypy, is it then at least
possible to install a newer virtualenv version?

I also don't get the argument that with an included virtualenv you can now write
tests.  Why not include the tests in the fork?
