The other thing I will note is that *if* we decide to add an implicit
bootstrap later (which I doubt will happen, but you never know), then
having "getpip" available as an importable module will also make *that*
easier to write (since the heart of the current bootstrap code could be
replaced by "from getpip import bootstrap")
