Read Packages from pip

The project idea aims at generating portfiles for python packages in pip that are non- existent in MacPorts. Also, the idea aims to bring uniformity to the present system by automating the process of creating ports to make package names in Macports match with the ones in pip which is presently not applicable for each and every port. This can be summarized as – when a user runs a command such as pip2port <package-name> it returns the port file for that particular python-package.
