Demonstration of a problem with only stdlib, and no undocumented features. This is on a Mac:

This works:

$ python3.10 -V
Python 3.10.0

$ python3.10 -m venv v310

$ v310/bin/python -m venv v310-nested

$ v310-nested/bin/python -V
Python 3.10.0

This does not work:

$ python3.11 -V
Python 3.11.0a3

$ python3.11 -m venv v311

$ v311/bin/python -m venv 311-nested
