Having a user agent defined in the clients connecting PyPI could also 
allow to make statistics on the usage of such tools (xx% of all the 
downloads on pypi.python.org are made by buildout, by the distutils2 
index crawler, by pip etc.)

I'm +1 on having CI tools using specific HTTP headers in order to avoid 
using those information as "user downloads". We can probably store this 
information in a different place and display clearly what the number of 
downloads for CI tools is on pypi.py.org
