[Distutils] [PyPI] Checking reST compliance of long description

I just tried to upload a new package with a pretty long long_description.
After uploading PyPI showed the text as plain/text...obviously an error
within the reST structure. Because of the length it took me half an hour 
for figuring out the error. My local rst2html script did not report any 
So what is the recommended approach for checking a reST file for PyPI 
compliance instead doing fixing-and-re-registering the package?
