Thanks for the info.

I'm not opposed to adding a symlink on POSIX systems - I just wanted to make sure that was the right solution.

My comment about adding links willy-nilly was about tools like Jedi that you mentioned (perhaps I misunderstood how it works).

Clearly, if the idea is to support Pythons patched by distros, then it seems that there is little alternative available apart from the symlink.

As you say, lib64 should be the symlink name, pointing to the lib directory.  Should the symlink be created on 64-bit Linux venvs on all POSIX platforms, and should OS X be excluded?
