Now that we can break compat in distutils2/packaging, we can change the default install dir to use PEP 370 user site-packages.  For users without root, copy-pasting “pysetup run install_dist” from the docs would Just Work™.  This would also avoid the dreadful advice to use sudo on OSes that have their own package manager and don’t want users to muck up with /usr.
