I don't know if this is the right place to report this, so please
direct me elsewhere if necessary.

I have noticed that the download link for the Python Imaging Libraries
1.1.6 is broken.
It does not point to the package, but rather a website where the
package is located.

This breaks it's installation with easy_install and pip.
