Marcus pointed out that should be:

    * pip 1.3 release with SSL verification support
    * pip 1.4 release with initial wheel support (soon!)

I also missed out:

    * PyPI relocation to OSU/OSL
    * PyPI CDN
    * Massive reduction in external link scraping (PEP 438)

Good things have already been done, more good things are coming, we
just need to pick a sensible order and time frame to avoid burning
anyone out :)
