Only through version specifications; i.e., request the exact versions you want.

If "enthought" is a namespace package, you would need to either be
using an 0.7-development version of setuptools (i.e., a trunk SVN
version), or else you'd need to remove those eggs from the path
*before* pkg_resources is first imported. Otherwise, it would indeed not work.

Not without using an 0.7 version of setuptools, or manipulating
enthought.__path__. The straightforward way to do it would be for
enstaller's __init__.py to do this:
import enthought, os
enthought.__path__ = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__))
This will ensure that all enthought.* modules imported from then on
will only be from within the parent directory of enstaller.
I don't think I'd recommend this to anyone in the general case, but
this might be a reasonable workaround if you truly want to
"de-namespace" the package. (It will *not*, however, prevent new
eggs from being added to __path__ if you add anything to sys.path or
the working set afterward.)
