It's not a problem to be naive here: If you don't know what a CNAME
is, you weren't target audience of last.pypi.python.org. Hence it's
not a problem that you get a bogus or no page when you put that
into a browser. I promise that such breakage will happen again, and
don't plan to make fixing it a priority.
