It would be *really* nice to have some sort of metadata/flag that said
"this project is pure Python". Normally, what I want is not *quite*
--only-binary, but rather "only binary except for pure Python where
I'm happy to take a source distribution". But AFAIK, there's no way
for pip to know that :-(
