Yeah, it looks like I broke "develop" when I added the '--always-unzip' 
option to the "easy_install" command (which "develop" subclasses).  That's 
the sucky thing about not having automated tests.  Thanks for the bug 
report, and your fix is indeed the correct one.  It never occurred to me 
that adding an option to the base class would affect the subclass that way.

I'm pushing out 0.5a11 now to fix this.  Sorry about that.
