We are not wedded to supporting pip, but I think the interaction between the two tools is positive. I think pip gains a lot from depending on us, and we get a lot of value from having pip as a dependency. So the cost of supporting pip would have to be pretty darn high for us to want to stop doing that, and so on this issue I think Donald is right.
