In the interests of making it easier to mirror package data consistently
with the uploaded package files, could we add to PyPI the feature that
it would save a version-stamped copy of the PKG-INFO file (as read
during registration) to the project's directory underneath /simple?

Folks who mirrored that tree using rsync could then write tools to
rebuild the index without requiring any extension to the PyPI XML-RPC
API to support mirroring.
