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 "application/zip" .
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).
"application/egg+zip" would require registration. I've not seen the "+foo" annotation style used for anything other than "+xml" yet, but this use makes sense to me.
