[Distutils] new PyPI: a rant from a package maintainer

I created an issue on setuptools tracker about Windows newlines (
https://github.com/pypa/setuptools/issues/1126), and another on Warehouse
about the "Invalid file extension" message and PEP 517 (
https://github.com/pypa/warehouse/issues/2281). I'm not creating one for
ignoring duplicated files in `upload` because twine already has this
feature (--skip-existing), and other people may be relying on this behavior.

Also, I agree with Nathaniel Smith that numbered versioning of the API
(/v0/, /v1/, /v/2) would be preferable to /legacy/.
