I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to get from those links, Wes, as that
code still scrapes every project individually and downloads them while all
I'm trying to avoid having to scrape PyPI and instead just download a
single file (plus I don't want the files but just the metadata already
returned by the JSON API).
