Do pypi users not also need to be able to detect and fix any versions
of libraries they might have? If one has some virtualenvs with various
libraries and apps installed and no --system-site-packages, one would
probably still want to run 'pip freeze' in all of them and find out what
libraries are there and need to be fixed.

Anyway, generally security updates require a comprehensive strategy.
One common comprehensive strategy is version assertion.

Vendoring complicates that immensely.
