[New-bugs-announce] [issue16926] setup.py register does not always respect --repository

New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

$ python setup.py --dry-run register --repository http://testpypi.python.org/pypi
Registering Foo to http://pypi.python.org/pypi
Server response (200): OK

This is with a .pypirc file with a [server-login] section.

It seems like this can cause unintended registrations on PyPI, etc.  It also makes it unclear how to get the URL that setup() will use prior to the real invocation (e.g. if you would like to prompt the user with the URL they will be pushing to).
