    Someone seems to be spamming PyPI by uploading multiple stupid packages. Not sure if it's some form of advertising spam or just idiocy.

    Don't know if we should care though... maybe policing uploads is worse than cluttering PyPI's disk space and RSS feed with dumb 1 KB packages.

    > girlfriend 1.0.1 10 A really simple module that allow everyone to do "import girlfriend"
    > girlfriends 1.0 4 Girl Friends
    > car 1.0 2 Car, a depended simple module that allow everyone to do "import girlfriend"
    > house 1.0 2 House, a depended simple module that allow everyone to do "import girlfriend"
    > money 1.0 2 Money, a depended simple module that allow everyone to do "import girlfriend"
    > workhard 1.0 2 Keep working hard, a depended simple module that allow everyone to do "import girlfriend"
