Description

We've removed most of "sudo pip" from the docs, but two instances remain:

docs/topics/install.txt:   command ``sudo pip install Django`` at the shell prompt. If you're using
docs/topics/install.txt:        $ sudo pip install -e django-trunk/

We should probably replace this recommendation with a requirement to use virtualenv.

It's already mentioned in the doc as a second pointer:

"2. (optional) Take a look at virtualenv_ and virtualenvwrapper_. These tools provide isolated Python environments, which are more practical than installing packages systemwide. They also allow installing packages without administrator privileges. It's up to you to decide if you want to learn and use them."
