Not that I know.

The file piplib-1.3.6/doc/pip.pdf says that PIPLIB is under GPLv2.
As fas as I know, this implies PIPLIB cannot be combined with the
current version of the PPL, which is GPLv3+, into something distributable.
However, if the PIPLIB authors will release under a GPLv3-compatible
license, we are willing to help building an interface.

I see. We had some plans to establish a collaboration with
the objective to incorporate this functionality into the PPL.
I have just contacted the people involved: I will let you know.
