Minor hysterical note: The original joke, as I understand it, was  
based on the fact that PyPI originally didn't contain any packages  
(or distributions). Like the cheeseshop having no cheese, the package  
index had no packages (or even distributions).  The original joke  
doesn't really apply any more as many or most of us are actually  
uploading our distributions, so the project index really does indeed  
have cheese, I mean distributions.
