What? setuptools and zc.buildout only use the simple view of packages
based on http://pypi.python.org/simple/ and then linking to
http://pypi.python.org/simple/zope.contenttype. This page always shows
all releases and doesn't care about the visibility status setting. The
PyPi pages are only for humans looking at packages. If your buildbot
warns or downloads 3.4.3 then there's something very funny going on
with your buildbot.

The current way PyPi shows packages to humans is obviously not
optimal, but not doing the tedious extra work and twiddling around
with those visibility status settings hardly counts as messing up. I'm
not aware of any release policy that requires us to do this extra
