I don't understand the pip case.
Why would we want to do a distro install?
I expect a distro would do something like: grab a copy of our bits (git or
tarball), do a build, use our install recipe as a guideline, copy the right
bits over to a staging area, setup their install script, and then package the
whole thing up with their tools. Sprinkle testing in there as convenient
Perhaps the copy-the-bits-over step can be simplified if we can install in a
designated target area.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
