>>> Why isn't there any builtin way to automatically define a lock file

pip isn't actually part of Python proper.

Nowadays, a regular installation of CPython lets you run "python -m pip". It's quite part of it.

You can do that with any library. You can issue Django commands by running `python -m django`; that doesn't change the fact that Django is a completely separate project from Python.

It isn't part of the Python executable, but it is part of the standard distribution.
