You tell me. Are they? How interesting. :)

I think you're right! The package that disappeared from the main PyPI a 
few weeks ago is still available on b.pypi.python.org, at least.

Wow, thanks!

I had assumed the mirrors would remove things, but it seems they don't. 
I think that leaves the overwriting issue: if I were to release a 
version of foo 1.3, and then later upload a new version of foo 1.3, 
would the mirror be updated with the new version or not?
