I think the issue this points at is actually with usability of PyPI. There
shouldn't be this miles-long list of packages on the right when logged in
in the first place.

OTOH, even with good usability I'd rather not have rights for packages I'm
not interested in, just to be able to deny responsibility if anything goes
wrong with one of them. Having rights for all packages involved with ZTK
refactorings would be helpful, though.
