Hm, perhaps Jim is extracting it by looking for #egg URLs, rather 
than by actually processing the reST markup with docutils.  That 
should probably be fixed, since there are many ways to specify URLs 
in reST and handling them all with regular expressions is unlikely to 
work as well as applying regular expressions to the resulting HTML.  :)

(Also, looking only for #egg links will miss non-#egg links embedded 
in the long_description, in the event that someone places direct 
download links there.)
