I would argue that keeping RECORD up to date is essential, as not doing so
breaks uninstall. It would also not be in line with PEP 376  It's actually
not entirely clear that PEP 376 allows for a second tool to update an
installation like this anyway (what goes into the INSTALLER file in that

Actually, a more general question - to what extent is PEP 376 still
relevant in the light of Metadata 2.0? Something needs to be updated to
ensure that the format and management of the RECORD file remains
standardised. There is a reasonable amount of information that is *only*
specified in PEP 376, so it's not really possible just to deprecate it
