Pyenv - Installing python 3.4 as an user
Pyenv_ is a useful script that allows you to install several python versions
in your user directory, and lets you manage which one you want depending on
the directory you are in. It is therefore useful for people who are on

You can follow the step-by-step `installation tutorial`_ on github that will
help you install it to your home directory (on step 5, you should use 3.4.2
which is the latest python 3.4 release at the time of writing this page); or
you can use the `automated installer`_ and use ``pyenv install 3.4.2``
Then you only need to add a ``.python-version`` file containing ``3.4.2`` in
your poezio directory to make the python version in that directory default to
the python 3.4.2 installed with pyenv.
