On next saturday (Python bug day), I will ask for my patch to be included in
Python 2.6 distutils.
(see http://wiki.python.org/moin/EnhancedPyPI, first part)

I have made a package that provides the same features in Python 2.4 and 2.5
in two new commands called 
"mregister" and "mupload".

It is available at the cheeseshop here : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/iw.dist

Besides the multiple server approach, it provides a few other improvements:

- the "-r" option was not caught in a command line that has several
distutils commands
- the "HOME" environment variable does not exists under some Windows, so it
  uses the proper HOMEDRIVE+HOMEPATH ones in that case
- the realm can now be changed for the registering authentication process

Please let me know if you use it !
