Hi All,

I hope this is an appropriate channel for patch submissions. Here is a
patch that mirrors the base "python3-pip" approach to use the system CA
cert trust file, rather than the one that gets embedded into pip via the
Requests/Certifi packages. This is preferable because it lets pip pickup
locally administered CA trust (e.g. certs issued by an internal CA). This
helps immensely when running a private secure pip/pypy repo!

This should be testable by comparing the output of these two commands:
scl enable rh-python36 'python -mpip._vendor.requests.certs'
python3 -mpip._vendor.requests.certs

The output if pip is using bundled certs is something like:
versus system certs:

A similar patch could probably be applied to prior SCL python (3.[345]).
But I hope by getting it in 3.6, it will walk forward for 3.7+.

The attached patch is public domain.
