I would try to run "virtualenv" in a virtual environment with a "distlib"
seemingly to fulfill the "virtualenv" requirements but in fact be under
your control (e.g. set up via "python setup.py develop").
I do not know whether the virtual environment mentioned above can
be set up via "virtualenv" itself (that would be the easiest thing).
If not, I would install "python" from source and tweak its "site-packages"
