So when I switch between two virtualized environments, you suggest that 
I remove the .pth files from the old one and add the .pth files from the 
new one?  This strikes you as a good solution?

If I have two virtualized environments, and I want to work with them 
concurrently, and they each require different versions of the same 
library, how do I achieve that with the current mechanism?
