Thanks. Now I would need two things:
1. a public statement by somebody that this is the protocol they would
   actually want to use. I still don't see the need for mirroring, so
   I would provide it independent of mirroring.
2. a recommendation what specific hub to use. I would prefer not to run
   my own, let alone implementing a hub as part of PyPI (although
   contributions are welcome).

I would then probably setup an RSS feed of the last hour of changes,
and arrange to ping the hub.
