Package: pipx
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

My first time attempting to use pipx, on a fairly fresh system.

$ pipx install poetry
The virtual environment was not created successfully because ensurepip is not
available.  On Debian/Ubuntu systems, you need to install the python3-venv
package using the following command.

    apt-get install python3-venv

You may need to use sudo with that command.  After installing the python3-venv
package, recreate your virtual environment.

Failing command: ['/home/joel/.local/pipx/venvs/poetry/bin/python3', '-Im',
'ensurepip', '--upgrade', '--default-pip']

'/usr/bin/python3 -m venv /home/joel/.local/pipx/venvs/poetry' failed

Installing the `python3-venv` package fixes this problem. I propose this
package depend on `python3-venv`.
