Provide a PEP 514-like registry for all supported platforms (Windows, macOS, POSIX variants)

There’s definitely a pain point here right now, different tools might need be version locked to a specific python version. pipx goes a long way towards isolating the packaging environment per app, I’m hoping we can provide even further support towards this goal for it and other tools. The pain-free stability this would bring to python deployments would be huge.

See Provide a PEP 514-like registry for macOS

(This would be very difficult to do for all POSIX variants since most of them don’t have anything close to the Windows Registry. But at least Mac does.)

Have you investigated some existing solutions like LibElektra? Could be bent to function almost like Windows Registry.
