Not counting old versions, my current list of packages where an archive is hosted
on PyPI numbers a little under 18,000. While not bang up to date, it's unlikely
to be too far out. There are additional packages which are listed on PyPI but
not hosted there.

This file has all the archives I processed - you can't see the text in the Gist
(it's too big, 17956 lines), but the raw file is available via a link.
