Pip install functionality

Installing pure Python packages
I'm building my Zettelkasten system on my iPad (I'll keep you posted on my progress, building some stuff you'll probably also like) and I stumbled upon the problem of not being able to install additional Python packages.
I'm came up with this script - click here to install - that mimics the behaviour of
pip install. It grabs the sdist or source distribution from pypi.org and installs the package in the /site-packages directory.
One more thing - Some packages are not python 2.7 supported anymore, but older versions of the package are! I've added a dict in the beginning of my script where you can define the package name and the latest version which is python 2.7 compatible. Please feel free to add some contributions to this dict so this dictionary can be extended.
