Yes, developers who register keys and have the stable role delegate 
their packages to themselves will not have this issue.

When I say "package", I mean what gets downloaded and installed when pip 
goes to PyPI to get a package with exactly the given name. I am not 
aware of a way to guide pip to install packages by projects (could you 
clarify what you mean by this?) or developers, but perhaps this might 
change in the future with PyPI metadata 2.0.
