Interestingly, I *am* able to reproduce your problem, but only with your
packages, though I honestly haven't tried many others. Anyway, I'll work
on getting a variant of your patch into 0.6a8.

Hm. The '==dev' part is the problem. Doing a bit of research, I see that
easy_install doesn't process dependencies for a package when its name and
version don't match what's requested on the command line. I've
unfortunately forgotten *why* it does this, though. The workaround for the
moment is to request 'mechanize>=dev' or just 'mechanize', both of which
will match any 'mechanize' version. Then the dependencies get processed.
I'll have to look into it some more to see if I can figure out why I did
what I did; I think it may actually not be necessary any more to have that
restriction, if in fact it ever was.
