[Distutils] #1858, looking for a reviewer

The register and upload commands have a --repository option that
allows to use them with any server.  You can register and upload a
package to any server that has the right set of web services. They
also work with a configuration file called .pypirc

Unfortunately there is no inline option to define the
username/password. This has to be defined in .pypirc.

But this file does not allow having different sets of
username/password, so in reality it is not possible to play with
multiple servers.

#1858 provides a patch for this [0]

I have submitted it in January, after some discussion in catalog-sig
and  distutils-sig, that led to a proposal [1]

I am looking for a final reviewer, to decide if the new .pypirc is
considered suitable, and maybe have it integrated in the 2.6.

This new format will be used in the Plone community to interact with
plone.org and the cheeseshop [2], (with a third party package
at this time, that implements the patch)
