Taking a step back, I think the only way to reliably do this is to have
virtualenv be Python2 for jessie, and change it to Python 3 in stretch.

python-virtualenv Depends virtualenv
virtualenv Depends python-virtualenv (ick a loop. Avoidable?)

and in stretch:
virtualenv Depends python3-virtualenv

By then, anybody using virtualenv has had the virtualenv package
