See https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/1668

Long story short, that's the intention, but there are a lot of
questions that need(ed) to be resolved. I'm not sure if we're at a

is whether --user installs work as well as we hope they do - as far as
I know very few people actually use them routinely...)
