That doesn't seem to be available in PyPI direclty, nor via the XML-RPC 
interface: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pelican/json

>>> import xmlrpclib
>>> client = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('http://pypi.python.org/pypi')
>>> client.release_data('Pelican', '2.8.1')/keys()

However, this is present in the uploaded distributions, in the 
generated PKG-INFO when creating the sdist. Any reason this information 
is not available without having to download the sdist?
