python-pip-wheel package




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

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

If you inspect the first one you find this file:

   /usr/share/python-wheels/pip-19.0.3-py2.py3-none-any.whl

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
  similar?

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