To give a bit of context, the bug was already open against Mandriva:
Mageia simply inherited Mandriva's policy:

The reason you might not hear much about python-virtualenv users is

1. they are likely to have already fixed their system as I did (i.e.,
   remove the PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE setting);

2. they are likely to fetch the upstream virtualenv, since it's a
   trivial package to install.
