I replied to Serhiy; it's just "blurb", it's a command-line tool, it's 
not a package or a module.  It should be a command on your path.

TBH I don't know if installation of a command-line tool like that works 
on Windows.  The tool itself was ported to Windows by Zach at the PyCon 
core dev sprints last month, though that predates the PyPI work, and in 
any case I could have broken the Windows support since then.  
Unfortunately I'm no longer a qualified Windows developer, so if it 
doesn't work on Windows I fear someone will have to send me a PR.
