[Distutils] current ez_setup.py appears to refers a non existing URL?

Since about an hour or so, when I run ez_setup.py (by way of a 
zc.buildout bootstrap.py script), I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bootstrap.py", line 172, in <module>
   File "<string>", line 76, in use_setuptools
   File "<string>", line 70, in do_download
   File "<string>", line 131, in download_setuptools
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 126, in 
     return _opener.open(url, data, timeout)
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 398, in open
     response = meth(req, response)
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 511, in 
     'http', request, response, code, msg, hdrs)
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 436, in error
     return self._call_chain(*args)
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 370, in 
     result = func(*args)
   File "/home/jw/runtime/2.7/lib/python2.7/urllib2.py", line 519, in 
     raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

And indeed, when I download ez_setup.py myself:

$ wget http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py

and run it, I also get the 404 on the URL:


I have been bootstrap.py-ing packages all day long and suddenly they 
stopped to work. Am I doing something wrong, or is the ez_setup.py broken?

Kind regards, jw
