Be aware you used pip and not pip3.

pip is the support package for Python 2
IIRC It's actually more complicated than that. With pip It depends on which version was installed last. If you install pip3 after pip2 then pip will point to pip3.

With stretch being end of life I wasn't expecting any updates and then when I saw a bunch of stuff I was a little concerned.
It will still get security updates for quite a while.

The only logical conclusion to your brief statement, that I can see, is that maybe Stretch has to go and I revert to Jessie on both units.
I think the conclusion is not to waste too much time on either of them and try to use the current version (Buster)

Why do I need another SD card? I don't think my old one's been overused (though it would explain a few things. How can I confirm?)
Only to make it easier to save / retrieve stuff from your old install.
If nothing needs saving then you can just overwrite your old OS

If someone knows how to write a disk image, he should know what xz is.
The problem is on the user side. Too many users would have no idea what to do with an xz file. Better to use a format that is more common.

The question is: what do you want to configure?
The standard RPF desktop has panel applets for configuring Wifi credentials, IP addresses, etc.
