You can override the pip command used to install plugins, here.
At the very beginning I in fact did use pip as a library like you suggest. I can't remember the exact problems I ran into with that that finally broke the camel's back, but I do remember that there were a lot of issues that were solved by switching to the external call approach that is now used.
