python-pip-wheel package

I noticed today that the "python27" and similar require among others these

- python-pip-wheel
- python-setuptools-wheel

If you inspect the first one you find this file:


which appears to be a full "pip" installation. This raises some questions:

1. if "pip" is installed alongside Python, why is it not put into "/usr/bin" or

2. if "python-pip-wheel" is already installed, what is the point of
  "python27-pip" and similar?
