The purpose of this package is to make it easier to devendorize other
packages which bundle various upstream packages.  An example of this
is pip, which bundles a half-dozen or so other upstream packages.  In
Debian and other distros, such vendoring is frowned upon.  To make it
easier to devendorize, dirtbike turns installed system packages into
wheels, and these wheels can then be used instead of the vendored
