[Distutils] PyPI upload doesn't support eggs?

I just tried doing the upload via the web interface, and got the same 
error.  It appears that PyPI doesn't support uploading eggs, which is 
surprising because I could've sworn that the sprinters at PyCon said they 
were putting eggs on the list of allowed filetypes.  But I just found the 
appropriate PyPI source code, and '.egg' isn't on the list of allowed file 
extensions, so I'll go ahead and file an RFE for this.
