Package: python-virtualenv
Version: 1.11.6-2
Followup-For: Bug #752467

Dear Maintainer,

The "virtualenv" package now exists in testing. However, As Mike Hommey
pointed out, nothing installs it by default on a system which used to
get the virtualenv command from python-virtualenv.

Installing virtualenv, indeed, makes the problem go away.

There is a weird pattern of dependencies, though:
      python-virtualenv recommends virtualenv
      virtualenv depends on python3-virtualenv

The package descriptions do seem to make sense:

	This is the command line script and manpage.
	This is the Python 2 version of the library.
	This is the Python 3 version of the library.

It seems like the dependencies are confused.
