Yup.

Moreover, ActivePython includes a tool called `pythonselect` that can
be used to set the "current" version of Python,
https://github.com/ActiveState/pythonselect#readme

For OSX, this basically sets symlinks in /usr/local/bin targeting the
appropriate Framework location.

The included pip and easy_install scripts are versioned, eg: pip-2.7
and pip-3.2.
