>>> I should have to start that package somehow.
>> `pip install` is a pretty good opt-in already imo
> 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.

At least for the coverage plugins there is a required opt in from environment variable (as shown above).  Though the startup cost is a good point.  Perhaps I'm of the minority but I use virtualenvs for everything so I haven't even been considering the system python.
