I’ve always known you can do
pip install from a git repository, but
a while back Adam Johnson wrote up some of the details. There are
plenty of other good overviews out there, (e.g. Simon Willison’s),
this one just caught my eye recently.

setup.py files as well, to achieve similar results.
liamks version got hit by a trivial API change in
plistlib in Python 3.9, so there was still breakage on my end, but
Anirudh Acharya has a forked repo with the necessary one
liner fix. Of course I used
pip install git..., and now my Music.app
experiments are proceeding apace.
