Not sure I understand the question:

WSGIDaemonProcess pypi display-name=wsgi-pypi processes=10 threads=1
WSGIProcessGroup pypi
WSGIPassAuthorization On
WSGIScriptAlias /pypi /data/pypi/src/pypi/pypi.wsgi
WSGIScriptAlias /simple /data/pypi/src/pypi/pypi.wsgi

According to the bzr log, I reverted that because Python would crash
(with a core dump).

Ah, ok - relatively speaking.

That is certainly true: the CDN proposal has more risk to not work
