related to http://bugs.python.org/issue12226, I think it would be nice to
add a link to the SSL connection to the PyPI front page:

--- a/pypi.html 2011-06-04 10:05:47.000000000 +0200
+++ b/pypi.html 2011-06-04 10:05:41.000000000 +0200

+PyPI offers a secure connection:
+"<a href="https://pypi.python.org/pypi">https://pypi.python.org/pypi</a>".
+The PyPI server certificate is signed by CAcert. On some systems
+(Windows, Ubuntu), CAcert is not a trusted authority by default.
+In order to use the SSL connection properly, import the
+"<a href="http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3">CAcert Intermediate Certificate</a>".
+into the browser. Make sure that you use the <em>Class 3 PKI Key</em> certificate.
