ATM, from my machine, xml-rpc requests to PyPI are taking about .27  
seconds.  This is only a little less than regular page requests.   
With the current API, It would require at best 3 requests to get all  
of the distribution URLs.  Presumably, with a change to the API, we  
could get this down to one request, but that's still a long time  
given the demand I expect on PyPI in the future.

It would be so much simpler to just publish a static page for each  
package that setuptools could parse.  I'll try to prototype this.
