So... everyone that uses pypi should be *forced* to use their own 
private pypi+externals cache? Otherwise they're not friendly enough to 
projects that don't want to use Pypi but that do it anyway?

Wow, that's user friendly... Thanks!

Why aren't there instructions on the front page of pypi on how to set up 
a private mirror of all external packages as that's obviously the 
professional requirement of every single person that types in "pip install"?
