+1 for publishing on bitbucket. I recently moved my own sandox from
python.org to bitbucket in order to make collaboration easier and I
know Eric already has an account there (cf. the importlib 2.x backport

The cpython mirror is at: https://bitbucket.org/mirror/cpython/overview

Also, take note of the refinement PJE described on python-dev:
sys.virtual_packages will be a dict mapping to __path__ contents and
directly importing pure virtual packages will only be permitted if a
child package has already been successfully imported.
