Note that pip does not officially support any use of its internal API
- it is purely a command line tool, and should only be invoked as a
subprocess. Having said that, simple use of pip's internal API isn't
difficult and if you keep to the higher-level APIs, things *shouldn't*
break (but if they do, you get to keep both pieces :-)).

For the use case of running simple scripts with dependencies, rwt
(https://pypi.python.org/pypi/rwt) might be a reasonable solution. You
can declare your dependencies in your script, then run it with rwt
which will install those dependencies to a temporary location, then
run the script with those dependencies active, and then tidy up
