> Because we never actually use the executable referenced by the 'home' path in a pyvenv.cfg.

This is actually not true on Windows or (I believe) some situations on macOS, where we need to use a redirecting launcher to actually launch the binary specified in this value. But on POSIX, because all the references are hardcoded in the binary, we can just copy the original around and it never loses track of its real home and never has to launch its original copy.
