How to choose another PyPI mirror in Python env bundled with PIO

Dear community:

I am using PlatformIO on VSCode. I live in China, therefore I suffer from a very low downloading speed on the official PyPI site. Each time I want to speed up my PIO-core updates, I will have to terminate the whole VSCode process just before starts and modify the pip settings manually. I wonder if there are any ways to switch the mirrors elegantly. Look forward to your reply.

Open a feature request on so developers can see that you want pio upgrade commands to be able to work from a different mirror.
