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.
