Ok, I just built a .deb using modified stdeb 0.3 on hardy and looked at 
the contents and it's like this:
./usr/share/pyshared/myapp/dir1/...(list of files)

I don't see anything about egg.  And it looks very similar to other .deb 
in /var/cache that I checked.
How much difference would I see if it was egg?
