In addition, maintainers of installation tools are asked to release

sounds good to me.

It is expected that tools in this release may choose to change the
> default index url to ``https://pypi.python.org/simple/-with-ext``<https://pypi.python.org/simple/-with-ext>in

so, *eventually*, the /simple interface (that has been transitioned to only
serve pypi links) could be deprecated?
(because new tools would be smart enough to responsibly navigate

but slightly ironic that we'd be left with an interface called
"simple/-with-ext", given the goal of all this, but it makes sense.
