How to use pip with crate.io

Here's how to use pip with crate.io (in case pypi.python.org goes down):
$ pip install --index-url=https://simple.crate.io yolk 
Or with logging to see what's happening:
$ pip install --log=my-pip-debug.log --index-url=https://simple.crate.io yolk

We tried to bundle all installation requirement in a buildout. Watch @ https://github.com/InQuant/buildout_crate.io

pip offers download caching, which is a huge help to performance even when PYPI is behaving itself. Just add to your ~/.pip/pip.conf:

[global]
download-cache = /mnt/pip-cache

Relevant Stack Overflow question. I wish pip did this by default.
