I've installed Python 3.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 through the dead snakes PPA 
and I'm trying to get pip installed.

$ python3.6 ~/tmp/get-pip.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/rsyring/tmp/get-pip.py", line 20061, in <module>
   File "/home/rsyring/tmp/get-pip.py", line 194, in main
   File "/home/rsyring/tmp/get-pip.py", line 119, in bootstrap
     import setuptools  # noqa
   File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/setuptools/__init__.py", line 
12, in <module>
     from setuptools.extension import Extension
   File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/setuptools/extension.py", line 
7, in <module>
     from setuptools.dist import _get_unpatched
   File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/setuptools/dist.py", line 16, in 
     import pkg_resources
   File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 1479, in 
AttributeError: module 'importlib._bootstrap' has no attribute 

Any ideas?
