Except that it conflates responsibilities.  I may not want to opt into coverage even being loaded in my application because I’m not going to use it and it has a negative impact on my application’s start up time.  Yet because you’re on the same machine and you pip installed it, I have no choice but to pay those costs, which I haven’t explicitly opted in to.
