Bootstrap Ivy Settings option
Use a separate Ivy settings for bootstrapping Ivy itself. This way you can get external resolvers (like the S3 one in that issue) and avoid the chicken-and-egg problem.

My comment on this is that if I have --ivy-settings set but not --bootstrap-ivy-settings set, I would like for the bootstrapper to use the --ivy-settings.xml file we have.
In our case, our ivy settings is overridden to make sure we only fetch packages from our internal artifact manager (we don't want it to go out to the Internet). With this change the first fetch will silently use a default template.
I think the change would be simple:
ivy_settings=self._ivy_subsystem.get_options().bootstrap_ivy_settings or self._ivy_subsystem.get_options().ivy_settings,
It would be great to get some kind of test in place for this, but I don't want to put all that on you, and it really is just a simple options plumbing issue.
I see that this passed the ci builder at: https://travis-ci.org/pantsbuild/pants/builds/123504708
I'll give John some time to respond, otherwise ping me on Monday and I'll upstream this.
