In the first form, how would you tell pip which branch you want?​ (assuming
you don't want whatever is default)

If you have a local directory `​third-party-foo-lib` would that take
precedence over a scm checkout?

​There would need to be a way to add this extra metadata (scm url and
default branch)​ in distributions ... uh, that means changing
setuptools/distutils? That means adoption issues, people won't always have
latest and greatest.
