There is a lot discussion on the "hidden" feature of PyPI.
Even if you set show_hidden to False, you may still get multiple
packages, if there are multiple non-hidden ones - it's not
required that all releases are hidden but one.

As a package owner, you have a Hide? drop-down for each release,
which you can set as you wish.

I've rephrased the wiki, but it's probably possible to use better
words to describe this flag.

Certainly. Much of it is a shallow wrapper around a store.py
routine; those do have docstrings.
