Hey Jodok,

I've taken to only using an internal repository for project buildouts;
if I need/want a new release from PyPI, I load that into the internal
repository.  That avoids depending on PyPI being accessible at all
times, and I can always get what I've used again.  No need to worry
about someone hiding old releases, or whatever.

It in incurs a little overhead on adding or updating a package used in
my projects, but avoids depending on a highly-variable service.  An
internal repository can still have problems, but at least it's easier
to make changes if needed.
