That'd be nice. And on that note, for the love of confused masses
everywhere, can we please change the name of easy_install to something
Python-specific, such as 'egg' or 'py_install'?
easy_install is completely ambiguous (is it a package manager frontend
for the OS? for something else?), and feels the need to remind me just
how easy it is every time I use it -- when I go to type the command name. :)
