I was wondering how those 2 bullet points combine. Say a user installs
3.7 from the store, then uses "python.exe" with arguments, in a shebang
line or a batch script.

Does it mean the script might break unexpectedly when 3.8 is released?
Then, would it make sense for the redirect command to proxy to the 3.7
install when arguments are passed?
