That's a thought. I could offer the user the option of either a) automatically 
installing homebrew and then installing python3 via homebrew, or b) manually 
downloading and running the python3 installer.

On that note, is there a fixed url that will always get the latest python3 
installer? Of course, I might not want to do that, for example after 3.7 or 4.0 
(I know, not for a while) is released, just in case something breaks with a 
newer release.

Yeah, that idea kinda left a sour taste in my mouth, but I figured I'd throw it 
out there as it would solve the python install issue.
