I don't like the overly long PyPI pages, but I do really like having
easily browsable documentation online. PyPI is the only places where
that is possible at the moment.

Pointing people to svn.zope.org to read documentation is not an option
in my opinion: finding and reading documentation would require a dozen
extra mouseclicks.
