[Catalog-sig] Reject or update PEP 243?

I just noticed that the 2.5 What's New references PEP 243 in relation to 
the distutils' "upload" command, but in fact the upload command implements 
a different mechanism entirely.  About the only thing the PEP and 
implementation have in common is that they do a POST to python.org/pypi and 
have a protocol_version field of "1".  Nothing else is the same.

Perhaps someone who knows how the actual implementation works could rewrite 
the PEP, or write another one?
