I just tried doing the upload via the web interface,

error. It appears that PyPI doesn't support uploading eggs, which is
surprising because I could've sworn that the sprinters at PyCon
said they were putting eggs on the list of allowed filetypes. But I just
found the appropriate PyPI source code, and '.egg' isn't on the list of
allowed file extensions, so I'll go ahead and file an RFE for this.
On an almost related note, what should the MIME content/media type be
for serving egg files via HTTP? It may be advantageous to use
A derivative like "application/egg+zip" would allow the media type to
be associated with easy_install or other handlers while preserving
the base media type information (although I'm not completely clear on
whether derivatives require registration).
