while working on disutils register command, and since someone in the plone
community suggested it:

wouldn't it be interesting to have a warning mechanism on server side when
the long_description doesn't compile in reSTructuredText ? (at register

This would avoid "broken" pages on PyPI where the display is in text where
it was intended to be in
rendered reST.

This could be a simple warning line when the PyPI server meets such a case,
and would avoid having
to deal with an extra package on client-side (like docutils)
