I'd like to do a bit of experimenting with a custom index with only the right packages in just the right versions. Some possible advantages I'm hoping to see for my usecase:
I use chishop for this with success: http://github.com/ask/chishop
It emulates PyPI's API, so you can get the packages in there easily enough by adding your chishop url in .pypirc and (using Python 2.6) "python setup.py sdist upload -r my_server".
Question 2: I thought you could only have one index. So installing something extra from pypi seems out. How do people handle that?
I use pip (and pip requirements files) for installation, and pip has both the -i/--index-url option (for replacing PyPI entirely) and the - --extra-index-url option (for layering another index in addition to PyPI). I don't know how one would do that with other tools.
