Luigi, you might want to consider setting up a private package server
instead of using PyPI. Where I work, we publish our eggs internally
via an Apache server, so we are able to make use of Apache's security
features (like https, authentication, and IP restriction). This works
fine with setuptools and buildout, and will probably also work in
future with the new 'distribute' tools.
