JFTR, I had a look at the code at PyCon last year and I could find my
way around it quite quickly.  It's not like PyPI is such a big codebase
that you need a year to get familiar with it.

This is of course not an argument against a rewrite, but the situation
is certainly not as gloomy as it is painted here from time to time.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
