Unless the sdist is tagged with require_python and users have
recent-enough pip. Which is what was referred to earlier as
This behavior is "new" (Nov/Dec 2016). The upstream patches were
written (in part) by the IPython/Jupyter team, for this exact purpose,
to not install an incompatible sdists.
(Works great I can share download graphs for IPython)
It _does_ require to have a version of pip which is not decades old
though, and may not work if you use a pypi proxy which is not pep 503
compliant (which happens, we got bug report, users then complained to
IT who fixed it).
