This will get better in the 0.7 series, when the "nest" command gets 
implemented.  "nest" will have a variety of subcommands including ones to 
remove a particular egg and to get rid of unused eggs ("nest rm" and "nest 
purge").  It will also have commands for commonly-used combinations of 
easy_install options, as easy_install has grown way too many options at 
this point.
