[Distutils] Side by side debug/non-debug eggs

Prior to eggs, if I wanted to have debug and non-debug versions of an
extension module available, I could build and install the extension
twice and the modules would happily co-exist, for example:
$ python setup.py build install
$ python-dbg setup.py build install
$ .../site-packages/twisted/python$ ls *.so
If I then ran a debug build of Python, the debug extension would be loaded.
When I ran a normal build of Python, the non-debug extension would be loaded.
However, with eggs, each new egg completely replaces the last egg. There
seems to be no possibility for side-by-side builds. Am I overlooking a
feature of eggs or of setuptools?
