It didn't work. The url for the beta is probably taken from the home page.

    Searching for psycopg2
    Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/psycopg2/
    Reading http://initd.org/psycopg/
    Reading http://initd.org/tracker/psycopg
    Reading http://initd.org/projects/psycopg2
    Best match: psycopg2 2.4-beta2

On the plus side, this means we will have more tests than expected.
