Re: [alpine-devel] Splitting out pip and setuptools from python3

I would like to do this as well, as setuptools and pip aren't a part of
"core python". It will also, as you said, save disk space.

It's kind of what npm is to Node.js, although they're usually packaged
together.

If someone is willing to put the effort into this, I'd say it's worth it.
