that section actually offers 3 scenarios, not just pip
- "To install globally with pip"
- "To install globally from source"
- "To use locally from source"
One alternative is to bootstrap via "get-pip.py"
if you haven't seen this, take a look:
So it seems that you can (ab?)use get-pip.py as a personal ~/bin/pip. You

get-pip has pip inside it, and it's calling "pip install -U pip
the sys.argv[1:] is intended for passing arguments, but technically you
can pass other packages and it will work.
I don't think we should be recommending "get-pip.py" be used as
"got-pip.py" in a talk.
the "got-pip.py" idea has come up before, and it's something that should be
discussed in full before recommending.
also, btw, it's currently under discussion to have pip's default behavior
(and get-pip's) be --user installs.
