That's true. That mission is "The Python Catalog SIG aims at producing a
master index of Python software and other resources."

I think this still is the mission - be *the* central site for indexing
Python software. The part "other resources" apparently never was
considered; it only indexes software now.

Ok. Of course, here the usual software engineer's reaction comes into
play: if you don't think something is that important, you try to come
up with reasons not doing it. I should have been more open: I don't
see that I have time to implement the clashing check that Phillip
proposed, although I'll see what I can do about the redirect
on lookup.
