Sometime PyPI is very slow.  For serious use it is better to create a
local PyPI.

Here is manual method to create PyPI:

1. mkdir pypi
2. cd pypi
3. mkdir zope.interface
4. cd zope.interface
5. wget -c URL-to-download-zope.interface
6. cd ..
7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 for other packages
8. python -m SimpleHTTServer # or use Apache

To install any package:

  easy_install -i http://localhost:8000/ zope.interface

There are some tools available: https://edge.launchpad.net/pypi-mirror
