[Haskell-cafe] hackage is down.

After some discussion in haskell at conference.jabber.ru, I've got this ideas:
+ Distributed hackage is DHT network.
+ Everything is PGP-signed.
+ Everyone can push package into network, everyone can rate package
(malicious / SPAM / unstable / stable / etc).
+ User maintains list of trusted people's open keys, in order to
validate authenticity and see trusted ratings.
+ Load balancing.
+ Ability to work through HTTP, trusted LAN peers, etc.
Sorry for my terrible English.
