The "pip install" into a root environment approach is the standard way
to setup Docker (and similar) containers, so I think trying to break
this on purpose will not do Python a good service.

The pip warning about this kind of setup which apparently got added
in one of the more recent versions of pip already is causing a lot
of unnecessary noise when building containers and doesn't make Python
look good in that environment.
