I agree, 1c sounds like a reasonable starting place (but I don't tend
to use editable installs, so treat my views on this with caution :-))
Also, I like dashes. But I agree with Donald here. Layering multiple
unimplemented features sounds like a mistake. Can we not get PEP 518
implemented before we start on this again? Thomas, are you interested
in implementing the pip side of either or both of PEPs 517 and 518?
