No. Please make an actual package for pypump, and make p depend on pypump

Don't install its files manually. Use the prototype PKGBUILD that Jesse
linked to. (Thank you, Jesse.) If you are installing a Python 2 package,
make sure to adjust the package slightly from the template: execute
`python2 setup.py` instead of `python setup.py`, and adjust the package
name accordingly. For yet more PKGBUILD examples, see some of my own. [1]
