pip 1.4 and pytz break installation of test requirements

pip 1.4 isn't installing pytz properly because of how the latter formats its version numbers (see the bug report here). This is breaking the installation of the test requirements as suggested in the documentation. Specifically, none of the requirements are installed because pip can't find a valid version of pytz.
This could be solved for now by changing the requirements file to read pytz>=2013b (or some other acceptable version), which explicitly authorizes pre-release versions (which is what pip thinks pytz's version numbers represent).
If ignored this bug will presumably fix itself when pytz changes it's version numbers to conform to pip's expectations.
