Now that www.myghty.org is back up, I see that the CheeseShop tarball is picked
up eventually. I believe that easy_install checks all of the various sources to
try to find a best match (for some definition of "best"). Of course, I would
consider it a bug that an exception raised while trying to fetch one possible
source stops the entire process, particularly when a matching tarball has
already been found.
