Yeah. Hell, the actual file upload stuff hasn't been announced. There's 
been mutterings that PyPI could use a better name, and I was going to 
wait until that had been settled before I made a formal announcement.

PyPI is just too anonymous and is also too easy to confuse with PyPy. 
I've never been particularly happy with the name.

So, any suggestions for a new name?
