Very clearly, most of egg-info is missing there. However, I
sense that people are very opposed to adding it there.

I merely asked whether it was ok to expose the egg-info
data at all, and was met with strong opposition - nobody
actually asked what specific API to expose them I had in

That's how I would have implemented it. Alas, this very
idea was just shot down.
