In principle that sounds great; I am not keen on reinventing either.
Would this require putting something on cheeseshop for setuptools to
detect a new Chandler version, or can you tell setuptools where to look?
AFAIK cheeseshop is not available over SSL.
I think making setuptools support secure SSL would be easy (if nothing
else, replacing socket.ssl by M2Crypto's implementation), but not sure
about HTTPS proxy. M2Crypto's httpslib has HTTPS proxy support (patch
written by a 3rd party, I haven't used it myself), so maybe that could
be adapted easily... Of course, I haven't looked at setuptools code at
all so I don't know for sure how any of this would work.
