They can just publish `numpy-mlk` and `numpy-​thatblas` or whatever on
PyPI, and that will even work better when it comes to dependencies. I mean,
if you build something for `numpy-mkl` then it wouldn't work on a
`numpy-otherblas` anyway right?

from a reproducibility standpoint,
when I run e.g. pip freeze,
how (without e.g. numpy-mkl, numpy-blas3k) do I reinstall the same package?

* { } URI params, post-#frag=ment encoding?
* {+1} prefix-[suffix]

how do I install the same version of the package that [you had / this
Jupyter notebook has (version_information, watermark)] on [your / their]
