Here's some more info.  We (developers) got in a bad habit of listing  
svn.zope.org paths as the "home pages" of our distutils packages.   
This was something I did that got copied. :(  setuptools follows  
distutils home page links looking for distributions.  One of the SAs  
here configured Apache to reject setuptools requests to the viewcvs  
site.  Hopefully, this will help.
