I'm afraid I haven't got a clue on this one.  I can't think of any problem 
that would cause you to get a DependencyNotFound error with a .egg file 
that wouldn't do the exact same thing for an .egg directory.

There are other kinds of errors I can think of that might happen for one 
and not the other, but DependencyNotFound isn't one of them.
