I like the BSOL idea, but in that case what will the package extension be
instead of .egg?  camelot.python.org has the advantage of suggesting an
obvious extension: .graal

So you go to the Camelot to get the graal (or one of them :).  In case this
catches on, I'd like to upload ASAP one of my packages [1] called "wholy".

PS "Grail" was a web browser written in Python (or an attempt at one).


[1] It's mostly useless but I trust wholy.graal will be downloaded by
millions.
