New submission from htgoebel <h.goebel at goebel-consult.de>:

Please add an option --download-only (or suchlike).

Some packages can not be installed using setup.py install, since they do not
support distutils. But if easy_install would support an option like
--download-only, it could be used to download the newest version and all
