You'd probably have to just copy pythonv.exe to an appropriate
directory, and have it use the configuration file to find the "real"
prefix. At least, that'd be a relatively obvious way to do it, and
it would have the advantage of being symmetrical across platforms:
just copy or symlink pythonv, and make sure the real prefix is in
your config file.
(Windows does have "shortcuts" but I don't think that there's any way
for a linked program to know *which* shortcut it was launched from.)
