Note that on macOS, within the next year macOS users using the system Python are going to be unable to talk to PyPI anyways (unless Apple does something here, which I think they will), but in either case, Apple was pretty good about upgrading to 2.7.9 (I think they had the first OS released that supported 2.7.9?).
