TLDR; For config files like .pypirc, configuration should be in the $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/python/

Thanks for the report, but at this stage of the distutils lifecycle (mostly unmaintained, may be removed from stdlib) I don’t think such a change would be useful.  Packaging guides recommend other tools, such as twine or flit, that don’t use this config file.
