pip is not part of Python 2, so I suggest to close this issue as "third party".

I dislike changing optparse just for pip. For me, the bug should be fixed in pip, not in optparse. I see a high risk of breaking applications which currently work as expected. If the default value is a non-ASCII string, unicode() will raise a UnicodeDecodeError.
