ok ok i hit this a few months ago but tought this was related to arm

i spoke to clark and fungi about it when i was tryign to get devstack running on a vm macbook air

this broke the ablity to do "pip install -e" which broke my normal workflow of keeping my workign repos
in /opt/repos and the devstack managed ones in /opt/stack

i was getting the same pbr issue when i tried to sudo pip install -e /opt/repos/nova
that is also when i encounted the issues with unistalling so this has been out in the wild since at least january
