[Python-modules-team] Bug#692108: More generally, python-pip vs Debian packages

I'm only now starting to use pip, but noticed in the Changelog at
that, for 1.0, ...
"Fixed uninstall of packages from system Python for users of
Debian/Ubuntu python-setuptools package (workaround until fixed in
Debian and Ubuntu)"

I haven't yet seen what kind of fix there was back then, but having pip
remove files from Debian packages without actually handling the Debian
package side (maybe uninstalling the packages / replacing by some dummy)
seems hazardous...
