pip could use certifi without using Requests. My guess is that Requests
is used mostly because it eases coding.

pip is, but I'm not convinced about Requests. If Requests didn't exist,
people (including pip's developers) would use another HTTP-fetching
library, they wouldn't switch to Go or Ruby.

Yes, I disagree. We needn't backport that new API to Python 2.7.
Perhaps it's time to be reasonable: Python 2.7 has been in bugfix-only
mode for a very long time. Python 3.6 is out. We should move on.
