I don't think anyone wants to write an alternative.  Well, maybe  
there are people like that, but you aren't reading them here.  Why  
would people spend time arguing about requirements, performance, etc,  
if they wanted to write their own.

Some people are being forced to implement their own indexes because  
they've become dependent on PyPI and PyPI just hasn't been there for  
them lately.  I'm pretty sure they don't want to maintain alternate  
indexes in the long term.
