You are right that 3.6 is a pain to get up and running with some Linux distributions. With Windows, MacOS, and Ubuntu it will be default version for people doing a recent install. Not so much with Linux Mint or some other ones. I'll think about your comment seriously. I quite like the new print formatting, but it isn't used a lot in the code.
If you don't like pip, install Arcade using setup.py. I'm not quite sure what you are looking for here.
