[Distutils] EasyInstall: scripts

I'm wondering how scripts should be handled by easyinstall -- right now
they pretty much get ignored. But I'm not sure how they should be
handled at all. Distutils has a couple rules, with --install-scripts,
and --home (which uses ~/bin), and the normal rules... and then some
translation of those options to Windows. But none of those seems to
translate very well to easyinstall. Or eggs.
I don't have any ideas myself on this. Except that the scripts
themselves are usually pretty dumb anyway, just thin wrappers that fix
up sys.path, import a module, and call a function; so the status quo
could probably be improved upon anyway.
