Any feedback on this? Nobody cares that Python eggs compiled with a linux distribution version of Python don't run on hand-compiled versions of Python, and vice versa? I added [setuptools] to the topic in case that's the convention to get people concerned with those to pay attention. :)
My guess is that nobody cares enough to provide a patch ;-)
The size of unicode characters is IMO part of the ABI "description", just like the python version and should therefore be part of the egg name. We should end up with something like 'lxml-1.0.1-py2.4-ucs2- macosx-10.4-fat.egg'.
A minor problem is that the right place to fix this is in distutils, not setuptools. That way other bdist_* targets would also pick up the right ABI description.
