Yes, Tarek is probably not convinced that z3c.pypimirror is not a
good starting point. I may be actually wrong in assuming that it is
better to start from scratch.

I don't have any code to share, beyond what is already implemented in
PyPI to support PEP 381 (and which is Tarek's work largely).

As for the protocol, I think the PEP says it all.
