interesting -- it doesn't show up in the PyPi search nearly that fast :-)

If anyone has downloaded it

Honestly, I'm really not worried about people having downloaded it -- but
if it gets mirrored almost instantaneously, then there's a problem.

well, let's face it, most packages are not nearly as popular as numpy...

But again, if it's been mirrored, we're stuck.
