> I don’t know what to do with that answer, really. I gave you some data (80%+ of requests downloads over the last month were Python 2), and you responded with “it doesn’t cause us problems”.

And indeed it doesn't.  Unless the target user base for pip is widely
different than Python's, it shouldn't cause you any problems either.

> As a final note, because I think we’re getting into the weeds here: this is not *necessary*. None of this is *necessary*. Requests exists, and works today.

And pip could even bundle a frozen 2.7-compatible version of Requests if
it wanted/needed to...

> Let me be clear that there is no intention to use either Tornado or
Twisted’s HTTP/1.1 parsers or engines. [...] Requests very much intends
to use our own HTTP logic, not least because we’re sick of relying on
someone else’s.

Then the PEP is really wrong or misleading in the way it states its own
