I tested again and setting PYTHONUSERBASE=<dir> where <dir> was created with virtualenv works just fine. 
Now, it would be interesting to see if all those hacks that virtualenv does are neccesseary or not.

Of course I did try this before writing the original post, but it seems I was bitten by a bug in my own code.
