easy_install replied on the behavior of /pypi/ (it uses the long list to do
case-insensitive searches). Someone changed it, easy_install broke, and a
compromise was to keep /pypi/ the way it was (but not /pypi).
Probably this could be removed, as the /simple/ index is already
case-insensitive, so easy_install shouldn't have to hit /pypi/ at all.
