[Distutils] SETUPTOOLS - Loading Eggs which do not have an egg_info

I have the following use-case:

within an application, i like to load several plugins from an folder, 
without any user-interaction


the plugins (standard sources prepared for setuptools, coming from svn) 
are arranged like this:

pluginone/setup.py #standard setup.py file

Is there any documented way to load such a "raw egg" (egg sources 
without a generated egg-info) into the application, without the need to 
generate the egg-info?
