Does Tox do any logging about what sdist it's using for a particular 
package? (or whether or not it's being downloaded from an index?)

If not, could it be added?

Yes, but that's not really appropriate here, it's only for certain jobs 
I want to use these manufactured sdists, the rest I want to go to PyPI...

(in fact, thinking about this more, it's actually worse than that... I 
may *have* to resort to use #git links as I actually want to do some 
matrix testing where the axes are:

- python version
- platform
- xlrd/xlwt release (master branch, latest released version, last 0.7.x

Sorry, I must have missed it, where can I find it?
