How shall I handle venv? I'm reluctant to disable venv in although it allows a user to modify sys.path. However it's only an issue under two circumstances:

(1) The user either needs write permissions to the parent directory of the python executable. 
(2) The script doesn't hard code the path to the interpreter in its shebang.

Point 1 allows the user to mess with the system in more serious ways. The second point can be avoided with a correctly written shebang line.
