Very cool.  Thanks!  It doesn't seem to catch file-uploads, either  
through distutils or through the web. I uploaded a windows release  
for zope.proxy this morning and I just (withing the last half hour)  
uploaded some eggs for http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/ 
zc.zodbrecipes/0.2.1 and am not seeing anything in the transcript.

I have no immediate use for action at this time other than as  
documentation when interpreting the output.
