   Isn't it the same on Windows? For an admin-installed Python you need
--users, admin rights or a virtualenv. And a user-installed Python on
Windows is equivalen to a user-compiled Python on Linux -- pip installs
packages to the user-owned site-packages directory.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
