I know how it works. In my opinion, PyPI should hide any packages that 
don't offer direct downloads from PyPI itself.
Why is this even being discussed instead of just uploading said packages 
to PyPI? It should be a standard part of the release procedure.
PyPI has a fair number of mirrors you can use if the primary one is 
down. However, if an external website goes down and no files are hosted 
in PyPI, you're SOL.
