It is even possible to place a Python 2.5 web shell - http://shell.appspot.com/

I can imagine this shell abused to a degree that people could even
play with site structure (making it a command line CMS):

>>> import pypi
>>> pypi.packages
[aaa, ..]
>>> pypi.packages['wget'].downloads
>>> pypi.packages['wget'].versions
['0.1', '0.2', ...]
>>> pypi.packages['wget']['0.1'].downloads

I want autocompletion for pydotorg services exposed through the site shell! :B
