suggestions for solving the 'pip' bootstrapping problem?

[ #32720 ]
pip represents a really neat idea. Make the requirements of any Perl project easy to install, without needed to understand how CPAN works.

I was considering trying to use it make the dependencies of this Ical2remind script easy to install. You should be able to get a Perl script working without needing to understand Perl or CPAN culture.

'pip' could help with that, but it has a bootstrapping problem. How to get pip installed without understanding pip or CPAN culture?

The solution it seems to me would be something like 'par': Distribute 'pip' as a single Perl script with all the dependencies for it glommed into the same file. ("Glommed" may not be a word. Globbed? Stuffed?).

Suggestions?
