This is just my view, but it seems like 50MB is awfully large to be
uploading into PyPI. For example, Django is 5.4MB. If you have a bunch
of 3rd party dependencies, like hudson, you really should be
downloading those elsewhere, rather than wrapping up a bunch of 3rd
party libraries in your own distribution.

Perhaps you could break down what you've got inside that 50MB and
let's see what we can do to make it more manageable?
