We want to add a PyPI client in Distutils2, and PyPI provides these information via XML-RPC.
PyPI could probably have a REST interface to grab these info as well, but this is another topic/project.
On our side (distutils2), we want to provide a nice set of APIs to get some info PyPI has, and the fact that it's via XML-RPC is an implementation detail: if PyPI switch to something else, this should just impact the internals of the client, and not change our APIs.
