I've been working for this in PEP 381 - http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0381/
And we started the implementation in PyPI code with MvL during the last Pycon,

It's not far from ready, but I had other topics to finish. But if
there's interest
we can finish its implementation, so sourceforge could be one of those mirrors.
