https://github.com/rbtcollins/pip/tree/issue-988 - resolver - its a
little horked right now as I haven't fully addressed the constraints
changes in the merge with it, but its readable.

https://github.com/rbtcollins/pip/tree/declarative - declarative
commits POC. Totally stale code but also worth reading (and not hard
to update when the time comes)
