The register command only uploads the package's meta-data.

The upload command uploads a file and registers the file's
details with PyPI as well.

I'd like to add an upload_url command which only registers a
file's details (including the URL, but without the actual file)
with PyPI and perhaps extend the number of attributes sent to
PyPI with more file configuration information (upload currently
only sends the Python version).
