[IPython-dev] Using pip within notebooks

Hi folks,
One quick question – in previous IPython versions, I had often used ``!pip
install`` commands from within the notebook to make sure packages are
installed before importing them. I've noticed that in newer versions of the
notebook this doesn't work – the kernel and the shell are not necessarily
in sync: it seems that pip is by default tied to the python version which
ran ``jupyter notebook``, rather than the Python version running the kernel.

Is there anything I can do to make pip work in the notebook again? Thanks!
