No, the tool will be usable by python2 packages as well.
I don't want to do that thread again but basically, egg_info are
platform-specific, whereas the new metadata version (PEP 345) will
have them right. PyPI already supports PEP 345.

I would not use the word "get shot down", that is scary for people
that want to contribute here.
I'd rather say "get a consensus on a feature before implementing it",
because that's really what it is.
