> 1. Install to user-packages by default.
there was a thread a few weeks back on this. everyone seemed to agree at
the end that just better error messages were enough. changing the default
install location is a huge leap.
> 2. Not depend on setuptools (??? - Nick's "inversion" idea)
with the bootstrap installing setuptools, it's not necessary, but I plan on
considering/helping/working on one or multiple of these for pip v1.5 anyway:
1) "bundling" setuptools (Donald's idea). it might not work, but
interesting to try. lotta pros to doing this
2) replacing pkg_resources with distlib (vinay posted a PR for this)
3) if not #1, pip installing setuptools on-demand when building is needed
(this was the old plan I think for PEP439 until the recent changes, and
get's us closer to the "MEB"s model)
