Python registering alternatives?

Part of the mission of the Cheese Shop is to 
safeguard the name of your software. Once 
registered, no one else can use that name. That's 
been done, unless you spelled the package name 

I read the following, and I'm not sure if you have 
tried it.

The quote below is from: 
item #7 Registering with the Package Index.  

"By default PyPi will list all versions of a given 
package.  To hide certain versions, the hidden 
property should be set to yes.  This must be 
edited through the web interface."

Sounds to me that you can hide what is on the site 
and submit a new version, if you set "Hidden 
property" to "yes". 

I don't know of any other place to register a 
python package with the python organization.

Good Luck,
