(By the way: setuptools 0.6 is probably not going in the 2.5 stdlib; after lots of discussion on Python-Dev, it's fairly clear that some 0.7 release should be the earliest version to go in, once the "nest" tools are done. Practically speaking, that probably means waiting until Python 2.6, due to the lead time that would be needed to get adequate field testing of the "nest" tools once they're written.)
That's unfortunate, though I can certainly understand the rationale. Based on feedback I've seen on the TG list, ability to easily manage eggs is a fairly common desire.
