That's actually the general argument against exceptions and why golang
doesn't have them. I have not seen notimplemented used in the wild ever

Also, regarding the build_dir argument, it won't be used in pip. The pip
devs may have said that but it's too much work to support now and most of
them seem to have a shortage of time. Pip will be copying to a temporary
directory for a long time.
