Yes, a parameter/environment variable would be helpful. Even better would be automatic detection, but that might be a bit tricky if the naming of python/pip binaries are not standardized across platforms.

To detect the running environment you can use sys.version_info, and if that is version 3, then try using pip3, otherwise pip2. Maybe you need something like this to check if the those binares are available. If not, fall back to pip.
