Well, also since the Placement maintainers have expressed that they
aren't interested in making Python API contracts for it to be usable
as an importable library, there's probably no need to install its
modules into the global Python search path anyway. They could just
go into a private module path on the filesystem instead as long as
the placement service/entrypoint wrapper knows where to find them,
