It will be some time before we drop Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.3 but
this is not a problem on the latest versions of Python: pip is
included by default with Python 3.4 onwards:


Actually installing pip on older Pythons is a pain, so I'd like any
wording to make it clear pip may not be installed, in which case
the traditional "python setup.py ..." route is the best bet.
