Hi All,

What I'd like to do at the start of the "Script generation" section was 
cat the setup.py of the demo egg to show the entry point where the demo 
eggs defines its script.

However, given that the demo egg is a binary egg, I can't decide what 
the best way to do this is. I'd thought of using the zipfile module to 
reach inside the egg, but I'm confused as to why -py2.3.egg files are 
specified in the test and work even though I'm running with python 2.4 
and there's no python 2.3 in sight?

Any ideas welcome...
