Yep, that autodetect is clever.  Such a thing does often come up.

If a script is shebanged with one Python version or another, this is always
possible.  I use it in fact to run /usr/bin/python-coverage with a
virtualenv'd python.

I don't think it is, since you can still create virtualenvs of whatever Python
you want with the -p option, regardless of what the virtualenv script is

The problem here is how to specify the package dependencies such that someone
who only has python-virtualenv installed in Wheezy, would automatically get
virtualenv in Jessie, for the /usr/bin script.
