I would like to know if I can use EasyInstall
to *download only* an egg file+ all its 
dependencies in a folder.

Concrete example:

I would like to download TurboGears egg and all other eggs
it needs but without installing it at once.

I didn't find a switch (the editable option was not what I needed).

Is there some hint or:

 - do I need to use a downloadmanager (I did it last time
   but you have to filter out manually what you dont want
   because on the TurboGears downloadpage there are all old beta's
   too ... and some eggs are missing here ...)

 - do I have to write myself a python script analysing the egg header
   and and and (perhaps it exist already??)

A small advice would be nice :-)
