When distribute hits a 404, currently it aborts. Instead it should gracefully keep trying

Right now, the PyPI entry for nose links to a 404, and distribute isn't smart enough to try the next tarball if one tarball fails.

This patch fixes that!

    I'm not sure about this. Distribute tries to find the best version, this patch would mean it wouldn't download it, I'm not convinced it's not better to fail at that point than to download another earlier version.

    It is in any case a major change in behavior.
