I am happy to announce the release of Distribute 0.6.1.
I mean False of course ;)
But wait, "zip_ok" is a flag on a package which tells whether this
package has something in it that breaks when loaded from a .zip
file. My proposal in http://bugs.python.org/setuptools/issue33 was
not to make zip_ok default to False, but instead to make
always_unzip default to True! always_unzip is a flag in your system
which tells whether you want to unzip packages when installing them.
I guess I don't precisely object to setting zip_ok to default
False, at least for now, but I prefer setting always_unzip to default
to True. Some people might like to configure their local system to
install packages zipped unless that package says that it won't work
