PEP 722: Dependency specification for single-file scripts

Once we do live in the world where script runners could actually choose and set up a specific Python version easily (the one promised by PEP 711), I don’t see why the Python version should be treated specially. As far as I can see, it’s a dependency. And “special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules”. There’s no PyPI package just named python, and I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be a PEP 541 excluded name; so why not just write e.g. python>=3.11 in the same list with everything else?
