I did a Twitter poll to see if there was consistent naming of the directory people created a virtual environment into when done locally to code (the answer is no). But a common theme was people not liking that the prompt defaults to the name of the directory that the virtual environment is in and seem to prefer for it to be `os.path.basename(os.getcwd())`.

Maybe it makes sense to add a `--basename-prompt` flag to set the prompt to the current working directory's basename?
