[Distutils] eggs in Python path

The eggs quick guide http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/PythonEggs#using-eggs
says that eggs can be installed by just putting them on sys.path.  This doesn't
seem to be enough though. A .pth file seem to also be necessary.

Am I missing something? Or is the documentation incorrect?
