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. :)
I care. :) The "Python ABI" of an egg *is* part of its "signature", I think. I don't know for what use cases the UCS4 stuff was designed, but it is *never* what I want (doubling space requirements for all unicode strings is a recipe for an unhappy long-running process).
I'd actually settle for having setuptools just refuse to install an incompatible binary egg, so that I would realize I needed to build it from source.
