Just to remind again: PyPI has an XML-RPC interface, and has had for a long 
time. It has a history of accepting any and all additional functions for that 


ps. why is it I keep on reading this undercurrent of "pypi doesn't do exactly 
what we need, so let's write a new one" and not "let's just add some more 
functionality to pypi so it does exactly what we need"... Is there something 
written somewhere, or even implied, that PyPI is somehow a closed 
development? If there is, I really need to strongly reiterate - PyPI will 
*always* be completely open for new developers. Please see the wiki page 
http://wiki.python.org/moin/CheeseShopDev for further information.
