Subject line nearly sums it up, I guess: if I easy_install something and
get a zipped egg installed, then decide I wanted in unzipped:
easy_install -U -f --always-unzip "http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/pyexcelerator/pyexcelerator-0.6.3a.zip?download" pyExcelerator
Best match: pyexcelerator 0.6.3a
pyexcelerator 0.6.3a is already the active version in easy-install.pth
Processing dependencies for pyExcelerator
...I end up the zip still there, and no unzipped install. Would be nice
if it were to replace it with an unzipped install.
Or is there some other way to ask for that?
