New Python Wheels and Pypi now support binary packages. This becomes a
really useful and convenient tool to install dependencies, with
multi-platform support, without even having a compiler installed.

Making QGIS Python plugins as Python modules would allow to use all pip
and pypi insfrastructure really easily.

The proposed osgeo4w grant application by Jef could include the low
level required changes necessary to introduce this behaviour. Right now
pip is distributed by default in OSGeo4w, but since not all OSGeo4w
python modules are installed through pip (but through specific exe
installers), this may lead to installation problems ( names conflicts e.g.).

If this work is done, there still will be some work on the QGIS python
plugin interface, but _not_ reimplementing a package management system
in QGIS and use pip instead could be a good option.

Vincent
