I'm certainly more comfortable with apt than with pip (probably
due to longer experience).

What's that last bit, though? From what I can find on-line, it looks as
if it would be similar to:
. ~/.bashrc
but I don't quite understand the point of doing that *after* all of
the other stuff.

Thanks for your quick reply.
