(Sorry for not making that clear - it's easy to forget which aspects of these issues aren't common knowledge as yet)
I knew that packaging replaced those others, but was unaware that those were the only two methods used on PyPI. Not that I'd heard of or experienced any others from that source, but there are many packages there.
I believe it is possible to get stuff up onto PyPI without actually using one of the various packaging utilities, but such entries generally won't play well with others (including automated tools like pip and cheesecake).
