That's fine for those of us who can run pip and install software from the 
web without being immediately fired, and for those who have installation 
rights on the computers they use. And those with easy, cheap and fast 
access to the internet.

Not everyone is so lucky.

There is a significant chunk of the Python community for whom "just pip 
install it" is not easy, legal or even possible. For them, if its not in 
the standard library, it might as well not even exist.
