serious +1 here.

Just last night I was writing up notes for an intro to python class on
getting started. (py2, :-( )

The "go download get-pip.py and run it with python" step(s) is a serious
hiccup. Better than it's been for years, but sure would be nice to just
"install python" then "use pip to install packages"

As for the feature freeze of py2.7 -- this is really an addition to teh
installers, not to python itself (or it can be seen that way, anyway)

Thanks Ned for offering to back port for OS-X !
