I said it was "too late", because there are already lots of people
worldwide who know the name "easy_install". It would be costly to
them to change it -- they'll go looking for the new version of
easy_install someday and won't find it, stuff like that.
On the other hand, if there is a strong desire on the parts of
developers to change it, I won't object.
