I still don't understand why you consider this an easier option than
contributing to the existing project. If you invest time to do an
alternative, isn't this more expensive than starting where others
have already contributed?

But if you think that scratches your itches: good luck!

That's also my concern. Nobody else is complaining; AFAICT, there
is just one unhappy user of PyPI.
