Trying to install pyttsx, it doesn't strike me as very clever that, as 
seen below, you get "Successfully installed pyttsx" despite the syntax 
errors and you can't actually do an import.

c:\Users\Mark\CrossCode>c:\Python34\Scripts\pip3.4.exe install pyttsx

I've looked at pyttsx in my 3.3 site-packages and it appears that I've 
manually run 2to3.  Is this something that could be done automatically 
by pip?  Your thoughts please, ladies and gentlemen.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
