If an expert user is unaware of having to explicitly install wheel, what
about other users?

Packaging is the most hated feature of Python. Please don't add extra pain
for purity and make sure that ensurepip installs "pip" and not "slow pip
until you install wheel in the venv".

To develop on OpenStack, I have more than 20 virtual environment on my PC.
I recreate them regulary because I like downgarding or upgrading a package,
or edit the code of a package directly in the venv (usually to debug).

Since pip7, the creation of venv is much faster. Please don't make pip
