pip is problematic in environments that have their own package manager 
(i.e. anything but bare Windows) because it doesn't honor its 
conventions (e.g. if it's a non-default Python installation, all its 
packages must use versioned or otherwise custom names for executable 
modules - see e.g. 
for an illustration). That's why it's not installed by default in 
environments where that's a significant problem.
