Fredrik Lundh is also affected (and might not have received any mail,
same as me):

He might be, but clearly the Python community as a whole is not impacted.  From what I see the latest version of PIL that is available is 1.1.6, which requires Python 1.5.2 or higher,

Indeed -- Fredrik never made any effort to support pypi, pip, etc. -- that's why the Pillow fork was started in the first place.
