I'm not convinced that this is a bug in python. __PYVENV_LAUNCHER__ is an implementation detail of CPython used in the implementation of the pyvenv functionality. 

I consider using this undocumented environment variable in distlib as a bug in distlib, which should be fixed there.  

It would be nice to know why distlib uses __PYVENV_LAUNCHER__ as that could lead us to a real bug or missing feature. 

BTW. I haven't read the discussion in [2] yet.
