Comment:

 Single tickets that deal with multiple issues are really hard to resolve.
 Please split up any issues that you'd like to continue working on into
 their own tickets, and make this ticket the parent.

 1) Removes the cron setup to a separate script (so running setup.sh
 doesn't alter your crontab)

 wontfix - In #24088, we want to get rid of setup.sh, it's just too
 fragile. We need to write good instructions instead.

 2) Changes the shell script to use a modern pip instead of peep (peep is
 deprecated and hash checking is incorporated into pip as of version 8.0
 (‚Äčhttps://pypi.python.org/pypi/peep/)

 revise - this needs to become a change to the requirements file, see
 #24089

 3) Updated dependencies as far as possible (Elixer's last version is 0.7.1
 and is only compatible with SQLAlchemy <= 0.7.8, obvious future
 enhancement to move away from Elixir)

 split off into its own ticket, please

 4) Added a convenience script to kill all the spun up processes

 split off into its own ticket, please

 5) Updated the ReadMe and the .gitignore to reflect these changes.

 put these in the branches for the relevant ticket(s), please
