I am not about to bikeshed on the name, but I would like to publicly
shed a single tear for no one even suggesting a Monty Python name
closer than "quiche". I think going with PyPI over Cheeseshop helped
put an end to that naming scheme, and that's a shame.

Anyway, I can always alias pysetup to cheeseshop or ohmightytim on my
machine and reminisce.
