Why? This is a relatively expensive page, due to it's size I assume,
that really provides no value. This will slow down setuptools.

And also unreliable, for the same reason. For example, it would have
been inaccessible yesterday afternoon. And also puts more load on the
server. It would be much better imo if static pages could be written

The download and homepage URL anchors need rel="download" or
They lack the #egg= links.
Compare your page for setuptools to mine.
Also, some packages use their pypi pages as their home page links.
You want to exclude these, otherwise, setuptools will circle around
to the human interface, which defeats point of the simple interface.
Thanks for plugging away on this.
