extend special handling of sys.executable to pythonX[.Y] #306
this should allow ipykernel's wheel-installed specs to specify
The new KernelFinder machinery may make this obsolete, but I think we still need this for ipykernel's wheels to avoid launching with sys.executable.
I think the big changes are still likely to take a while to settle, so it's worth doing a 5.2 release with this and other improvements. I might make a 5.x branch and back out the new discovery machinery, since that's part of the big changes I'm still working on.
