I'm all for high availability of PyPI. Fortunately the current hosting  
runs pretty reliably, but we've already realised that some people are  
expecting it to be available 100%. This can really only be achieved  
through mirroring. Of course there's other benefits to mirroring (as  
someone living on "the wrong side of the Pacific" I can vouch for the  
coolness of having local Sourceforge mirroring).

There's a bunch of PyPI mirroring efforts already; "pypi mirror" in  
Google shows up some.
