<p>There are multiple situation you might be in, with multiple ways the bundles should be installed.</p>
<p>Currently:</p>
<ul>
<li>Ask whether to use pip; default set in config (<code>installBundlesWithPip</code>)
<ul>
<li>yes
<ul>
<li>use root if <code>distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib()</code> has uid 0</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>no
<ul>
<li>use distro</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
<p>New plan:<br>
Better detection of the situation, better display of what's gonna happen</p>
<ul>
<li>virtualenv
<ul>
<li>install with pip</li>
<li>if system-site-packages, install with sudo+distro</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>global env
<ul>
<li>install with sudo+pip</li>
<li>install with sudo+distro</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>conda env (use sudo if not user-writable)
<ul>
<li>install with conda</li>
<li>install with pip?</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
