Would you use PyPI as download server or as primary location if it would
be more reliable or having a usuable mirroring infrastructure?

The point: of course I can create own internal mirror - but do we really
want or need that? My business is building software - not mirrors or
workarounds for a missing or unreliable package infrastructure.

Side note: just checked CPAN - CPAN has 228 official mirrors, PyPI has
no official mirrors (only four or five) inofficial mirrors as part of
the PyPI mirroring project).
