I guess I just didn't find the time, but my objections are
non-technical and have apparently been of no interest when voiced in
the past.

Basically, I think exposing human beings to the name "cheeseshop" in

particular Monty Python skit.  A nice skit (IMO), but not a good
public-facing name for PyPI.
