Having looked at the implementation, the easiest way to do this will be to add an "applocal = true" option to pyvenv.cfg, which would behave identically to setting %PYTHONHOME% to the directory containing the config before launch.

I wanted to support relative paths for "home = " but the path handling is so far from sufficient that it wouldn't be secure. As it is, I've fixed a lot of potential buffer overruns in getpathp.c already, but I don't want to implement true relative paths, so I'd prefer to require "home = " to be absolute and add a second property that effectively means "home = .".

Any thoughts/comments/preferences?
