[New-bugs-announce] [issue24640] no ensurepip in embedded Windows distribution

New submission from Chris Krycho:

There is no `ensurepip` module bundled with the embedded distribution of Python 3.5 for Windows:

    Z:\python-3.5.0b3-embed> .\python -m ensurepip --upgrade
    Z:\python-3.5.0b3-embed\python.exe: No module named ensurepip

This may be the *intent*, but I haven't been able to find any documentation to that effect in the [docs](https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/ensurepip.html). It looks like it should either be included with the distribution or noted as excluded in the docs. (I can readily submit a patch to the latter if it needs doing.)

(Background: I'm looking at various ways to bundle up and ship a Python application, and as part of that am looking at just shipping the embedded Python distribution, which may end up being the most straightforward for us. One of the things I'm still sorting out is the best to get and bundle up dependencies if that's the approach we take.)
