I'd like to be able to run ensurepip in the 3.5 installer with pythonw.exe, to avoid having the console window appear.

Unfortunately, pip requires a valid value for sys.__stdout__. This patch adds a dummy value for __stdout__ that allows pip to be installed/uninstalled with pythonw.

I see no reason not to check this into default now, so just seeking a quick review from the module owners. I can also backport it to 3.4 if that's thought to be worthwhile, but I don't think the installer for 3.4 will be updated to use pythonw, so it probably doesn't matter.
