I think the issue has been open for long enough without clear consensus.
Hence all packages should rename their /usr/bin/pip to something else and
document the difference vs upstream in README.Debian.

BTW, finding new names is hard, but choosing a 3 letter acronym is a
recipe for problems...

Please take care to coordinate with other depending packages if needed
(virtualenv for python-pip?).
