Rewrite the code so it doesn't steal stdout? ;)

Really, this code should be rewritten to use more modern Pythonic
style, such as

    def _open_index_file(self, archdir, index_name):
        # ...
	# remove the sys.stdout hackery

and then any place that does "print something_useful" should get
rewritten as "print >> self.__f, something_useful".

I don't have time for that, but I'd accept a patch.
