And now I’m *really* interested in a bittorrent backend for pip.

That’s an interesting idea, especially if you plug it together with something like this:

Another approach would be to it with a DVCS-like network of servers (think Git but simpler) that periodically pulled from each other, or used webhooks to know of the updates.

Hell, if you make a large enough network, you could even use blockchain tech to verify authenticity and versioning.

Bah, now I feel like building something just for the fun of it.
