cool idea -- though it's kind of backwards - i.e. conda installs stuff
outside of the python environment. So I'm not sure if you could shoehorn
this all together in that way. At least with a significant re-engineering
of conda, in which case, you've kind of built a new plug-in  or add-on to
pip that does more.

But it's be great to proven wrong here!
