I think that's because I turned of proxying from www.python.org/pypi
to cheeseshop.python.org/pypi, and replaced it with redirection
(302, temporary redirect) instead (temporary just in case people
find problems with that).

(I asked a few days ago whether that would be a problem, and nobody
said it would).

I'd appreciate if somebody could investigate what precisely
is causing the problem (I thought urllib[2] would be able to
handle redirects), how to fix it, and propose a fix to the
code base.

I have now reverted the change (which, of course, gives a
performance problem, as all accesses to www.python.org/pypi
now go through two web servers).
