It's not longer eventually than pypi.python.org/package, and I think I
need to put /version also into it (right?), so with separate hosts, I
get http://package.pypi.python.org/version, perhaps with the empty URL
redirecting to the latest version.

In any case, I've asked whether XS4ALL can provide us with a subdomain,
or a wildcard record; if that fails, I'll fall back to
packages.python.org (unless you specifically would prefer pypidocs over

Thanks for all these ideas,
