Probably not, though perhaps a new module would be nice. As for the
CPAN-like thing, I really got a kick out of Greg S's WebDAV session on
Apachecon, and I think it would be suited extremely well as the transmission
protocol for SPAM (or however you want to call the Python CPAN ;). You can
do the uploading, downloading and searching for modules using WebDAV without
too much pain, and there's excellent WebDAV support for Apache ;)

Is anyone working on something like this, or even thinking about it ? I'm
not deep enough into distutils to join that SIG, but I definately would join
a CPyAN SIG ;)
