Thanks for replies about API, I used XML-RPC myself, but it's not a
good user experience to require Python shell to get information from
the web site. http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/S/Sphinx/ really
helps to see what packages are available using browser alone, but
unfortunately it is a hidden magic.
