Ouch. 0.6c9 is over a year old, so 0.6c5 is quite
ancient. Checking the revision history, 0.6c7 changed the default
URL to use the /simple index, and 0.6b4 added support for 'rel' link handling.
That means that any requests from a "setuptools" user-agent (that
string was added in 0.6c1) should be safe to rewrite (not redirect,
alas) as /simple/ when they request /pypi/. Any agents older than
0.6c1, however, can't even be detected.
Do you have any stats on hits by "python urllib" user agents to the
/pypi/ page? My guess is that these will all actually be pre-0.6c1
