I seriously question the need for a new .EGG_INFO directory...
Given that a typical site-packages directory doesn't have many files in it anyway.
Typically, it will contain 20+ project/package subdirectories or .EGG files/directories.
;-) Mine has 213 files/directories, and I use virtualenv and buildout to keep the number down. I also use Gentoo Linux which has distro-packaged lots of Python-based apps, leading to more entries in site-packages than might otherwise be expected in a virtualenv/buildout environment.
