zc.mirrorpypislashsimple is not much helpful right now since it does not
mirror the real data (just checked the code and played a bit with it).

A task for our Blackforest sprint would be:

 - all to pass-in a configuration file where you define with packages should
   be mirrored where each line of the configuration would represent a
   package pattern:


This would also fit in our haufe.eggserver infrastructure where we maintain
a local egg repository on the filesystem.   zc.mirrorpypislashsimple could 
directly sync PyPI with our local egg server.
