That's one of the advantages that .py's have over .pyc's in eggs.
For example, Tahoe ships a bundled version of the setuptools
bootstrap egg in which I just manually deleted the .pyc's and renamed
it from "setuptools-0.6c8-py2.5.egg" to "setuptools-0.6c8.egg":
Perhaps this will cause some problems for us (what are those .exe's
in there for, anyway? cli.exe and gui.exe), but it has worked fine
http://allmydata.org/trac/setuptools/ticket/5 # binary eggs should
come with .py files by default, rather than .pyc files
Note that this URL is to an interim issue tracker that I set up a
while back, before the official setuptools issue tracker  was set
up. So don't post any comments to that ticket -- instead if you
think it is an issue then post a new ticket on the official
setuptools tracker and/or the new "distribute" project... Hey!
Where's the issue tracker for the new "distribute" project?
