How about the caveat of utility? Whilst npm has a reasonable SNR and gems has so many modules that there are enough useful ones hidden there, pypi is mostly full of crap and not useful when you want to achieve something.

That said, egg basket makes it remarkably easy to host your own mini-pypi server for darkpan you've generated
