Replacing an existing package, without changing the version number,
*is* messy. It's not pip's fault that it's hard. That's like saying
"Oops, I committed this to source control and pushed it out to all
users, but there's a big file in it and I want to delete it so they
don't have to download it". Sure, that's possible, but it's not a
normal action, so you'll have to jump through some hoops to make it
all work properly.

Or have you been having this whole sacrificing a goat thing with a
normal workflow?
