Table of Python Packages

I certainly found the table of packages interesting, if for no other 
reason than that it let me know which of my packages are readily 
available to users.  Your method of generating it seems rather labour 
intensive.  I'm wondering if there could be metadata added to PyPI for 
e.g. RPM/DEB package names for each package.  Of course, those are 
generally added after the first release of the package, but later 
releases could include the information.

Have fun,
